Just starting to animate...nLibrary technician in a small town...nFanatical procrastinator...nAnd part-time Imperial Officer.
Cartooning, bicycling, camping, fantasy books, etc
Animation that I love:
Fruits Basket, Invader Zim, Excel Saga, Triplets of Bellville, Wallace & Gromit, Nightmre Befre Xmas
While fluffy white clouds make fluffy puppies, kitties and babies for storks to deliver, a darker cloud just as joyously creates new baby alligators and other, less-fluffy babies. All of this is very hard on his faithful delivery stork.
Funny and ultimately sweet, I get teary-eyed watching it.
Heartily recommended, especially to those who are weary of 3D and want to see some beautiful, traditional animation.
In a more modern film, Rupert might be expected to take a more active role in the plot: his involvement pretty much consists of sneaking in, listening, yelling 'Look Out!' and telling his mum about it afterward. A modern retelling might also contain some hint of the motivations of the 'villains' a couple of cats and an owl who turn up at the show in an apparent attempt to capture or kill the frogs' (star performers? King and queen? Unknown...)
Still, if you relax and don't worry about the unanswered questions, this little short can take you back to childhood.
