Storyline

Are animals human? Or vice versa? This is the question asked by a professor, Dr. Beest Lee, who appears on a stage in a theater to give a lecture and show a film about the human-like qualities of various cartoon animals, among them a beaver who "damns" a troublesome river, a groundhog who uses technology to predict the coming of spring, and a dog who scolds his neglectful master. Written by Kevin McCorry <mmccorry@nb.sympatico.ca>

When the dog is first introduced, he's smiling. But when it cuts to a close-up, he's frowning. The first shot is a misplaced cell from the end of the film, when the dog is overjoyed that his master has finally come home. See more »
