Welcome back to animated shorts week!

Today we’ve got an interesting artifact! Based on the lauded 1978 picture book by Marianna Mayer, this animated short from Bosustow Entertainment unfortunately retains none of the rich visual design provided by Marianna’s ex-husband, Mercer Mayer, in the book. While the studio itself produced Emmy-winning shorts and many segments for shows like Sesame Street, the sketchy, stylized 1970s look of the short does no favours for the story.
