Decent, if unspectacular, short done by UPA
20 January 2014 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is an average short done by UPA. There will be mild spoilers ahead:

While UPA did some fairly impressive work and had some excellent shorts, like every other studio, they also did some stuff that didn't do much more than fill contractual obligations. This one, in my view, is one of those place fillers.

It shows a family where the son makes a wish to switch sizes with the father so that he can be the boss for a change. The father doesn't like this at all. After a while, the son slowly realizes that being a grownup isn't all that easy. Unfortunately, the father doesn't seem to realize that the same holds true for being a kid. Some of the bits are very funny, but overall, it's just an okay short but nothing special.

This short can be found on the Jolly Frolics set released in 2012. The set itself is excellent and this short is worth watching at least once. The set is recommended.
