This 'plymptoon' is entertaining and has a nice quirky style to it.
'THE COW WHO WANTED TO BE A HAMBURGER': Three Stars (Out of Five)
A six minute animated short film about a cow who wanted to be a hamburger (just like the title says). It deals with the evils of advertising, the wrongs of mass production of beef and the love of a caring mother. It was written and directed by popular animator Bill Plympton (a plymptoon as his animated projects are known) and is done in a very poor but charming animation style. The film was one of the 'ten pre-selected short animated films for the 2011 Oscars' (It didn't receive an official nomination but it does air with the Oscar nominated animated short films in their current theatrical run). The film is funny and has positive messages to teach. It's a bit simplistic and the animation is obviously nothing pleasing to look at but it is entertaining and has a nice quirky style to it.
