Everyone loves a Hamilton Mattress, 7 October 2002
Author: poc-1 from Cork, Ireland

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.
