Storyline

The Fudgets are like many families. George Fudget is the household breadwinner. His wife Irene takes his money, pays the bills, puts the remainder into their savings account, and sometimes takes a dollar here and there for her "cookie jar" savings so that she can on occasion buy those little extras for herself, her weakness being hats. George doesn't know about that cookie jar, so he chastises her every time she buys a hat. Sometimes their budget may go up, such as when George gets a new higher paying job. And sometimes they need to spend more than their budget, such as when something unexpectedly breaks and needs to be replaced. They just hope that they can weather any proverbial rainy days, for which they may or may not have enough in their savings. Written by Huggo

Interesting animated short
20 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Clever animated short. The whole thing is done with a graph as a background (which fits). It's about a family with two kids that live comfortably within a budget. Then things change. The boy grows up and they constantly have to get new clothes for him. The wife also has a weakness from expensive hats. They find themselves with HUGE budget problems and no way out.

Despite the way I'm making it sound it's actually fun. It's done in such a light-hearted way that it's impossible to be depressed by it. There are countless clever visual jokes that make this a pleasure to watch. It was also nominated for an Oscar as Best Short. Adults will find this more fun than kids.
