Sweet memories, 27 December 2010
Author: bts1984 from Portugal

This wonderful animated short was part of my childhood. I absolutely adored to watch this over and over as a kid. Today it is a cartoon that I highly respect and admire for its excellence and the strong nostalgia effect it has on me. It's a timeless classic. It's pure, childish, artistic, charming, extremely nostalgic, relaxing for the eyes and soul... a great little masterpiece.

A more innocent cartoon than this is difficult to find. It is as innocent and harmless as a cartoon can be. You don't see anything like this now. Ah, those were the days!

This short is very colored, but it also has some darkness and a certain spooky feeling thanks to a darkness that is only comparable to Disney's classic 'The Rescuers'. You know, the feeling of being in a scary and forbidding place which is strengthened thanks to the brilliant music that really has that creepy feeling. But still, it isn't too frightening even in the darkest moments (then again, like 'The Rescuers'). The artwork is wonderful, even in the darker parts (once again, comparable to 'The Rescuers').

The song "We All Stand Together" is truly delightful and eternal. The sequence itself is very jolly and animated: I mean, a festival of dance and music with nothing but frogs at the rhythm of such a jolly song?? Good heavens! There is nothing like this!

Incredible as it may seem, this short is a production by Paul McCartney and his then wife Linda. Paul even voices a few characters, such as the lovable little bear Rupert.

This is a short that should never be missed in any collection of gold classic animated shorts/films. It is rather special and makes you feel really good.

I'm not aware of the title of this in Portugal, which is a shame.
