Okay here's the plot- David Thewlis stars as the voice of Sludger, an aardvark who is a natural drummer and wants the good life, including having decent trousers (he is OBSESSED with trousers!) Along comes Feldwick C. Hackenbush, a caterpillar who is obsessed with fame and fortune and sees Sludger as a potential target. Together they set off to Beak City where Sludger changes his name to Hamilton Mattress and sets out for fame.........
This short animation film is brilliant! It's so funny. Like many kiddie films, this is a moral story. Sludger is seen as ugly despite his natural drumming talent and the moral of the story is that looks don't matter.
David is brilliant as Sludger- he brings the character alive and makes him really funny. When I think of his voice, I think of "Island of Dr Moreau" or "Harry Potter". I can imagine David having loads of fun with this one I've not had so much fun with an animation since watching "Wallace and Gromit".
