As usual with the works of Bill Plympton, the script is sophisticated and witty as a calf decides he wants to be the best hamburger in the world and works hard towards that goal -- at least until he becomes aware of the consequences. There is a lovely soundtrack that goes with this film and the sound effects are exceptional. If you see it -- and you should -- stick around for the funny credits.
The one issue I have with this Plymptoon -- as Mr. Plympton calls his work -- is that it basically a quarter animated and the sense of movement is eked out by essentially jiggling the frame. I know that Mr. Plympton can not afford the sort of full animation today that Disney could in 1946, and he does make a virtue of this necessity, but I wish someone would give him enough of a budget to fully animate one of his pieces.
