An incredible short!
29 December 2001 | by llltdesqSee all my reviews

This short, nominated for an Academy Award, is an all-around excellent production. The animation, production values, score-all are extremely well-done. One of the best shorts produced in the last ten years, without a doubt! The detail in many scenes is absolutely amazing. This is shown periodically on the Encore Channel or one of its' subsidiaries and is well worth seeking out. We can only hope someone decides to do another compilation along the lines of The World's Greatest Animation. I have no idea how Spike and Mike missed this one! Maybe they didn't, but I haven't seen it listed on any of their stuff. Highly recommended.
