Fantastic animated mockumentary!
16 May 2009 | by (Albuquerque New Mexico) – See all my reviews

In a world populated by anthropomorphic fruits and vegetables, four Raisins from California on how they were ordinary dried grapes would soon become famous singing stars.

A hilarious and creative Clay animated mockumentary from Will Vinton Studios! i love how they use the popular commercial characters of the time known as the 80's and turned the characters into a funny hour long TV Special. The Clay Animation is well done including the soundtrack using songs of the 50's and 60's including early 70's including "Cool Jerk".

I highly recommend watching this overlooked cult fave!
