Another excellent Pencilmation experience! I have really been enjoying these trips around the world, and I'll be looking forward to the next installment. They always make me chuckle, and this short Mythtory tale was well executed. I'm not sure if there's a moral to the story or not, but it certainly proves the point that anyone can work together when there's money to be made. :)

In reference to a previous reviewer, the symbols for the Japanese yen and Chinese yuan differ only in the number of horizontal strokes across the Y. The two-stroke version (used here) is accepted universally for both.

This reminds me of some of the quirky cartoons that Night Flight used to show on the USA network. Great Job.

This didn't look like it was going to be that good at first. I was nicely surprised to find out this flash was a lot of fun. I felt bad for the worm when he got his silk taken away. I was afraid you would end the cartoon right there, but you went with it. I did kind of miss having the main character there, although he did appear in the intro. The animation is as fantastic and well detailed as ever.

I like how everything has a nice cartoonish feel to it. It makes you appreciate all of the things you can do with animation. I really don't know much about silk and the history of China. I guess this probably won't make me an expert on it, but it's nice to watch at least. Thank you for another fun cartoon!
