Bob Dog tries several jobs, but gets canned immedately. He returns home and gets pulled into a TV commercial for a K-Tel style album whose songs outline job search techniques, like You Gotta Have a Plan. He goes on an interview: after passing through a waiting room full of big scary characters, he is rejected immediately. For his next interview, he gets more aggressive too much so. For his last interview, he comes in as a one-man-band and is immediately ejected. He finds himself confronted by scary street characters who mock him for not having a job and awakens to the end of the commercial, and a ringing telephone. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

The story is decent, but the animation quality and style is great!
10 August 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

GET A JOB is a very, very strange film and it's hard to put into words exactly what I thought of it and why. It's just one of those films that you need to see to appreciate.

The film starts with a music video of sorts with hand-drawn animation that looks a lot like an underground film--but higher quality. Then, following the old song "Get a Job", you follow a poor sap's unproductive day of job searching. Again and again, he blows the interviews and it's very funny to watch this poor shmoe mess up or have insane prospective bosses interviewing him. In the end, there's an excellent zinger to tie it all together.

In many ways, GET A JOB reminds me of the wonderfully subversive Mighty Mouse series from the mid-1980s ("Mighty Mouse, the New Adventures")--with very fluid animation and a crazy spirit. This is quite a complement since this series was ground-breaking and seemed to help lead to a renaissance in animation.
