And interesting and rather fun watch.
16 November 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Richard Williams is a genius and this truly shows the extent of his talent. Yeah, it's tripped out beyond belief, but hey, Williams is known for this. After all, this is the same guy who gave us Raggedy Anne and Andy and did most of the animations for The Thief and the Cobbler. He also animated Ziggy's Gift. Something about his tripped out style just has this certain charm to it.

As for the film, this does a great job showing just what Truth, Good and Beauty are all about. I enjoyed this a lot. True, it didn't have much of a plot, but it didn't need one. That wasn't the point. Everything about this is just so brilliant. If you can find a way to watch this, do so.
