Storyline

A giant statue of the letter "E" arrives in the park. One man sees it as "B"; they are preparing to cart him off to the looney bin when a doctor arrives and determines the man needs glasses. Then the king arrives; he also sees "B". He tries on the glasses, sees "E", and pins a medal on the doctor then has his goon squad come and bash on everyone's head until they too see "B". Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

This is one of the best animated shorts I have seen come out of the deep and dark nation to the north. It was a short testament on the effects of tyranny. One man sees the E in the park as a B. Instead of being thrown into an asylum, the doctor finds the solution to the problem. The man needs glasses and he sees the truth before him. Not long afterward, the king comes along and he suffers from the same problem. The doctor points this out and gets a medal but the king pulls Hussein-like tactics and makes everyone conform to what he sees. The E is now a B and will forever "B" a B (he-he!). Bretislav Pojar has hit a political nerve with this little animated short. I give it a 10 out of 10!

Here ends my rant!
