An excellent piece of animation
17 January 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Aside from the astounding animation and excellent gags, what sets this short apart is the music, alas a too much overlooked portion of film, especially short animated ones.

One should watch this short again while devoting most of his attention to the background music, which flows along with the action, precisely delivering the mood of the moment, be it dramatic, cocky or hilarious.

Indeed, Reg Powell is a seasoned film composer, whose works spans three decades.

One has to look back half a century or more to the works of Carl Stalling and Milt Franklyn to find such finely cued-in incidental music, especially for an animated short.

More than any other small background detail, it is the soundtrack that makes this animated such an outstanding jewel, at par with "One Froggy Evening" or "Alice in Wonderland".
