In the early '90s computer animation was beginning to take hold and one-hour films like this would feature this new technology. There is supposed to be a story here, but good luck finding it. The fun is in the visuals which range from good to outstanding. My favorite segment is the music one with the jazz players and Washington-Lincoln.
Speaking of music, not all of it is the standard instrumentals. There are a couple of vocals. There also is some short narration. The whole thing is about 45 minutes with 10 minutes of ending credits tacked on.
This may be over a decade old in a technology that has grown leaps and bounds, but it's still good stuff and worth checking out.
