A Humorous Explanation Of Animation
28 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really liked this: stick figures explaining to us - and themselves - what animation is, and some of things it can do.....both good and bad. Hey, as they say in here, anything can happen in animation......even those beloved Innocent stick figures can be set on fire. (Yes, the writers here are sick people.) "Welcome To The Show" also parodies those introductions you see at the movie heather about "no smoking" and patronizing the place to buy popcorn and candy. The stick figures dancing to the tune "Let's All Go To The Lobby" can't help but make you laugh.

The second part of this trilogy, "Intermission In The Third Dimension" has its humor, too, and I enjoyed the subtle stuff, such as graphics stating "not all theaters offer 3-D glasses" after the two high-pitched cloud-figures-with stick arms and legs asked, "Do you all have your 3-D Glasses on?" Then one of the "guys" walks back and forward, in case we do have the glasses. The explanation of the meaning of the "third dimension" is pretty stupid and the sight gags from there are very lame.

"End Of The Show" is the finale of "The Animated Show" DVD. I like the speech one of cloud-guys gives about the serious business of animated art and how it isn't just mindless violence for kids and "mentally handicapped" people. (Their words, not mine.)

Of course, after that speech we see nothing but violence and death!
