Please excuse the indulgence, but current events led me to want to watch this one again.
I noticed an older post on Bangazee, a blog about kids’ animation authored by Gred MCleod of the most awesome Brothers MCleod:
Yesterday I went on a Masterclass with Frank Gladstone at Aardman. He’s worked for Disney and Dreamworks and the like and one of the things he showed us was this cartoon, which is beautifully drawn, structured and has the most excellent timing. The dog’s name is also fantastic… Mark Anthony. Who calls their dog Mark Anthony? Brilliant!
I think this has always been one of my favorites since early childhood, but besides that it’s a great cartoon in almost every way.
