A nice little claymation short
9 February 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Just a year before SUNDAE IN NEW YORK won the Oscar for Best Animated Short Film, another claymation short was nominated (THE GREAT COGNITO). And while I hated THE GREAT COGNITO though respected it artistically, I felt much more satisfied when I watched SUNDAE IN NEW YORK. You see, it isn't that I hate all claymation--just the horribly fast pace and "in your face manner" of the previous film. So what was better about SUNDAE? Well, the speed was slower and more leisurely--encouraging the viewer to take in all the cute backgrounds and characters (such as Alfred E. Newman standing in a group of New Yorkers). The gentleness of this film was pretty infectious and was significantly more interesting that the standard style of animation that dominated in the early 80s (which was usually very cheap--with a very low cel count). The only negative wasn't even related to the animation and that was the sound of the guy singing "New York, New York"--his voice wasn't close enough to Ed Koch's (who he was obviously imitating) and it was also pretty hard on the ears! Still, a nice effort and a film that is a standout in quality.
