Typical Plympton, 26 February 2008
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

I enjoy the short films of Bill Plympton. The artwork is lovely (featuring unusual colored pencil animation) and the sense of humor is always rather twisted and weird. GUIDE DOG is exactly what I expected from the man--for good and for bad. I was not disappointed, though very little caught me by surprise either. I can almost guarantee if you watch it you'll like it.

The film begins with a dopey-looking dog responding to an ad for guide dogs. However, he's not the most competent dog and he isn't very lucky, so again and again bad things befall the blind people he's trying to guide. It's all pretty funny--somewhat like a Roadrunner cartoon.

This film is one of the bonus shorts included with the wonderful DVD "A Collection of 2006 Academy Award Nominated Short Films"--a must have for fans of the genre.
