Outstanding and original with a really great song
14 September 2008 | by tigerchick07See all my reviews

This cartoon is a rather psychedelic and modern tribute to the Fleischer/Disney/Iwerks cartoons made 40-50 years prior. It is has a cheerful and memorable tune, loads of color, and an assortment of delicious animation styles that are pure pleasure. Too bad there isn't a better quality copy on YouTube. Watch the sparkle to go with the color in some of the scenes, check out the musical notes that leap off the page and dance (very Fleisher-esquire). I love the splatter-paint scenes and how they suggest 3 dimensions. The brush that's visible at the beginning reminded me immediately of the out-of-the-inkwell scenes from the Koko the Clown animations from the late 1920s and early 30s Fleischer. Are there artists doing anything like this now? Let's hear about them!
