Everyone loves a Hamilton Mattress
7 October 2002 | by (Cork, Ireland) – See all my reviews

This animation from Harvest Films & Egmont Animation tells the tale of Sludger the Aardvark a natural born drummer whose talent is discovered one day by Feldwick C Hackenbush, a large green caterpillar. Together they head off to Beak City (inhabited entirely by birds - geddit?) to try to make it big in the world of drumming.

I haven't enjoyed an animation so much since Wallace and Grommit.
