Very funny--and featuring the "hero" from several other Plympton films.
16 February 2009 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Like last year, I went to a special showing of the Oscar-nominated animated short films. However, unlike last year, in addition to the nominees, several "commended films" were also shown. HOT DOG by Bill Plympton was one of these commended films.

This short is about a dog who is desperate to become a fire dog--even though he's not a dalmatian. However, try as he might, either the dumb firemen are too preoccupied to notice when he does good or the dog screws up and makes everything a lot worse.

If I had never seen GUIDE DOG and GUARD DOG, I think I would have liked HOT DOG even more. However, the same silly and very accident-prone mutt is in each of the films and I liked the previous two films even more--especially because they ended up being much more violent and weird than HOT DOG--thinks you've come to expect from the films of Bill Plympton!! Still, it's enjoyable and fun--with the typical colored pencil art you'd expect.
