I think Animation World Network said it best when they said "so effective is it as a laughter calibration tool that if you're between the ages of two and dead, you will see mirth in it." This very fun traditionally-animated short has only two main characters but the pirate and the castaway fill each fast-paced scene with enough energy for a cast of thousands.
It opens with the morose castaway and plumes of water shooting up in the distance, a wonderful foreshadowing of the pirate character. The castaway just wants to be rescued and the pirate only wants MONEY! When they finally get together, the end result is both hilarious and unexpected.
I believe this short is available over at www.Filmporium.com The $5 DVD comes with the entertaining, historical (and Academy Award nominated) "My Grandmother Ironed the King's Shirt and informative "Black Soul".
