Bob Dog tries several jobs, but gets canned immedately. He returns home and gets pulled into a TV commercial for a K-Tel style album whose songs outline job search techniques, like You Gotta Have a Plan. He goes on an interview: after passing through a waiting room full of big scary characters, he is rejected immediately. For his next interview, he gets more aggressive too much so. For his last interview, he comes in as a one-man-band and is immediately ejected. He finds himself confronted by scary street characters who mock him for not having a job and awakens to the end of the commercial, and a ringing telephone. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

This is sufficiently amusing overall I guess. Its colorful and rhythmic anyway. But it has one device in it that I want to point out. It makes it worth the couple minutes it will take.

Our poor sap needs a job, the situation being circumlocuted. One node in this is us watching our sap which he watches himself on TeeVee. Ted's law applies, in that what's on the tube is as remote from him as he is from us.

In this regard, at least we see that the animator is a lucid artist and worth paying attention to.

Ted's Evaluation -- 3 of 3: Worth watching.
