This is just perfect, beautiful, fluid, original, gorgeous, I just have to say I've seen really few videos able to compete in this cathegoy out there, is trmendously well designed and planned, you are a serious professional in this, keep it up, because you are the kind of person that truly inspires others into creating art, I take my hat off to you, congratulations.

I freaking love the fact that I'm stumbling onto cartoons that I have heard appeared on film festivals. A pity I didn't first see them here, but they're still great. I guess the main reason I freaking love this cartoon so much is because the main character is so freaking cute! Heck, nearly everything is cute here. It's amazingly unpredictable! You would think that the skeleton creature was going to be a villian.

Of course, it's also wacky how the mouse is the villain. The voices were completely flawless in this! I guess it might seem kind of silly to have so many voices for a cartoon where characters just make sounds and not words, but it's worth it! I hope you win every award here and at that film festival! The animation reminds me of "Winnie The Pooh" to a certain extent. It certainly seems as adorable as that.
