Love soaked and funny, 6 March 2006
Author: The Lazy Southerner from United States

With a great bit of animation, great writing, and a wonderful narrator, This comes out to be a beautiful piece overall. The gentle pacing and cartoony but flattering character designs allowed this piece much gravitas. At first I questioned whether or not the short should have been in "The Animation Show" but it's writing and fluid stop-motion animation alone carried it well.

Personally I have nothing more to say about this piece and to expect me to be anything but excited to write about this great piece is just plain word greedy.

If only my family in Austrailia could be this interesting.
