This Cartoon Just Blew Me Away!
26 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

This is one of wackiest and greatest cartoons I have ever seen. It almost goes beyond description because the artwork and the story are so crazy, you literally have to see this to appreciate it. I spent most of the five-plus minutes either with my jaw dropped or laughing out loud at what was seeing. I understand this is a sequel, sort of, to "Guard Dog." Oh, man, it that is anywhere as good as this, I'd love to see it.

This dog is one of the funniest character I have ever seen on film: animated or live-action. He sees a "Help Wanted: Guide Dog" sign in a window, applies for the job and unbelievable things occur with the people he tries to help.

Just take my word for it: this is fantastic. I saw it on The DVD "A Collection of 2006 Academy Award Nominated Short Films." The ironic thing is that this wasn't nominated; it was a bonus feature on the disc.....and it was better than ANY of the nominated films of either category (animated or live-action.)

This is the only cartoon I have EVER watched three times in one day.
