Storyline

Medieval times. A jester is heading to the castle, but can't help running into a fruit tree in his path. Again and again. After a while, he lands nose-down and when he gets up, his nose remains stuck in the ground. He gives up, and we see that "wise" people aren't faring much better. He returns to his master, who gives him a replacement nose and sets off on an easier path. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Really, this animated short is pretty dumb and random -- the hapless jester; the cackling, mocking flowers; the lurching sun with the Frankenstein voice. Nevertheless, I have never laughed so hard in my life at anything I've seen on a movie screen. "The Apprentice" was part of the Canadian Festival of Animation, back when animation festivals were huge and there were, like, four a year. How come none of them are available on video? Man, I miss those.
