| Very good (although a somewhat loose) adaptation of the story with incredible detail in the Claymation
This short (actually close to 30 minutes in length) was nominated for an Academy Award and deserved to be. The attention to detail is high, which is typical of a Will Vinton project. Narrated by Will Geer (a perfect choce, by the way), the story is adapted rather loosely in spots, but it's a marvelous piece of work and I'm glad it's apparently still in-print. A worthy effort well worth seeing. Most recommended.
