Very cute cartoon by Ernest Pintoff
8 October 2002 | by llltdesqSee all my reviews

This short was done by Ernest Pintoff for Terrytoons studios and is an example of how good the medium can be even on the cheap, which is the only way Paul Terry did anything-as cheaply as possible. Pintoff did excellent work with animation early in his career and Flebus is one of his best. The main character is a terminally nice guy who likes everyone and it's hilarious! Well worth watching. Recommended.
