In a backwards comedic way it's educational as well.

'LET'S POLLUTE': Three and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

A spoof on educational cartoons from the 50's and 60's, this Oscar animated short serves as a satire on why it's important to pollute and how it's good for our economy and helps corporations. It's directed and written by Geefwee Boedoe and written by Boedoe, Tim Crawfurd and Teddy Newton. It's narrated by Jim Thornton. The film is hysterical at times and in a backwards comedic way is educational as well. The animation isn't anything appealing or advanced but it's nostalgic and true to the animated films it's spoofing. Even at 6 minutes it does get a little long and become sort of a one joke film but it mostly works and is humorous for most of it's running length.
