The animation reminded me of the old George of the Jungle cartoons,
and some of the characters (including the hero's love interest) are
extremely one dimensional.
Still, the story is quite fun, and pure Disney. It's a shame that
this short is not more readily available (but then I'm partial to the
whole tall tale genre.
Also, you may find some familar faces in this short. Two of the citizens
look similar to Jasper and Horace from "One Hundred and One Dalmatians",
which was also released in 1961.
