Interesting interplay between live action and animation
23 February 2015 | by peefynSee all my reviews

In the opening of the previous Kapten Grogg shorts you get to see the animator drawing the opening shot. In this one the animator is working as usual, but he is tasked with making a portrait of Kapten Grogg. The good captain then comes for a visit, and turns into a slapstick chase through the apartment. It is surprisingly well done and fun! While the animation is clearly flawed at times (jumpy at some points, and see through at other), other scenes are really good!

If you are watching these because you are curious about the history of animation, then don't skip this! It's actually really well done! I could imagine showing this short in front of later feature length movies doing the same thing, like Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Mary Poppins or Song of the South.
