pure Canadiana
9 April 2017 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

This three minute short packs a lot of Canadiana into a small package. The song is darn catchy. It is lots of fun and delivers on the intention of the NFB. It's about a girl who pines for her log driver and his dancing abilities. Not only are there log drivers, but there is a moose and a beaver. This and "The Hockey Sweater" are examples of great Canadian animated shorts that form the foundations of a country.
