The short is funny in a very dark way, and the accompanying
tango music is captivating. It's too bad that this short got such a
limited release and so few people have been able to see it.
Seeing as how it was originally intended to be part of a third
Fantasia, this demonstrates the creativity that can still be exercised
with hand-drawn animation.
What also helps was that the concept was started by Disney
legend Joe Grant. Amazing he was around for both Fantasias.
The cartoon was worth seeing, and its Oscar nomination was
well-earned. Maybe in the near future, when Disney gets back on track
and revives their hand-drawn animation services, we'll be seeing more
stand-alone films like this, and possibly that third Fantasia.
