Very good (and very short) little animated short well worth seeing.
5 May 2003 | by llltdesqSee all my reviews

This short won the BAFTA for Animated Short and was nominated for the Academy Award as well (losing out to Bob's Birthday, if I'm not mistaken) and was well deserving of both nominations, though I think two of the other BAFTA nominees were probably better than this and Monk and the Fish should have won. This is very brief (about two minutes long or so), but it's awfully funny and Frank Gorshin still does an excellent Kirk Douglas impression. Well worth seeing and if I write much more, reading my comment will take longer than watching the short will. Recommended.
