Meet some children with quite vivid imaginations!
15 September 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This excellent and very creative short is somewhat hard to find, but it is one of the better efforts done by UPA, which is no small compliment. The minimalist nature of UPA's style of animation lends itself extremely well to this tale of children playing cowboys one fine day and the imagination these children show is delightful. Well worth the effort to track down. That it isn't seen more these days is a sad commentary on the crackdown on violence in cartoons, while in television and films, shooting and explosions are commonplace in things easily viewed by the same kids the self-appointed guardians of acceptability seek to "protect". Most highly recommended.
