very cool
7 August 2003 | by katanacow232See all my reviews

I don't know what is is but the whole short was very cool. One of my favorites. Even thought it had had-draw pictures that were all wavy and stuff is was still very fun to watch. Also the sound was too notch when he was falling through the sky and past the railing.
