Hard To Express How Stunning This Looks & Sounds
Wow, the first thing I noticed was how stunning this looked. Of course, I have been watching a ton of 40s, 50s and 60s cartoons in the last two months so something this new - and with surround sound - is a shock to see and hear, and is extremely impressive.
Even in this computer era, this is a stunning short little animated story. Sometimes I couldn't believe what I was seeing and hearing as two one-man bands compete for a coin from a little girl. All they want is a little money for their efforts, but this little girl is a tough sell. The music by these two guys is spectacular.
Others have gone into detail so there is no need for me to comment except I will stick up for the two incredible one-man-band players. The little girl was a nasty, little so-and-so. However, as a cartoon it was amazing and almost too much for words. It just makes me wish more of this kind of thing could be done. Why can't there be good, original, entertaining and clean cartoons any more? You have to go back to the 30s through the '70s for anything good, like the Looney Tunes or the Pink Panther
This Pixar cartoon shows the incredible animation that could be done for short cartoons today This was an extra feature that came with the "Cars" DVD.
