Storyline

Mr. Bee spreads the word that there is going to be a 'PM Picnic' in the barn latter that evening. He tells everyone in the countryside, from Mr. Bear to Mr. Rabit, although he does not invite Mr. Tortus because he's too slow. This was a promotional film made for PM (Plesent Moments) Whiskey to promote their new ad campaign, that features animated woodland creatures along with the slogan describing PM Whiskey and it's 'Clear, Clean Taste'.

Once again: How Does It Taste?
16 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

If like me you're annoyed when you buy a ticket for a movie and discover that, among other things, you are paying to look at advertising, think about how people felt when they went into a theater with their families in the early 1950s and saw gamboling, faux-Disney woodland critters urging their youngsters to drink blended whiskey? The work on this advertising cartoon for National Distillers is pitched as a hard sell, with the brand mentioned frequently, as well as its "clear, clean taste" (that means that it doesn't make you gag so you can get drunk fast). Most of the motion is achieved by panning over the background work and the animation shows that this was done fast and cheap --a lot of partial animation and most of the dialogue is spoken off-camera to cut down on the cost of animated the spokesperson's mouth. Unless you have an interest in the history of commercial animation, this is one you should avoid.
