Jasper Series puppet short.
23 May 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

So so Pupetoon picks up in the final race sequence, even if they want us to believe that Jasper can outrun the thundering race pack while playing gypsy fiddle.

The plot has his music energizing the old race horse to dash around the table top scenery. Jasper hits on playing for him in the Derby where he is left at the post but puts on a series of bursts of speed to carry off the winner's cup and retire in comfort.

Neither Jasper or the horse are particularly endearing characters and there are none of the stylisations that make the Pal shorts striking here.
