After hearing that Jones had died, a four-year-old child asked her mother, between sobs, "Does this mean the bunny won’t be in the barber chair any more?" The answer is, "No, the bunny will be in the barber chair forever."More recently if we're honest, there hasn't been much in the way of 'good' animation. Pixar have done some gems, my personal favourite being "for the birds." Nick Park and Aardman Animations have obviously made the Wallace and Gromit Series. Also, unknown but just as funny if not more so, is a Welsh animation called Gogs (named after the South Welsh nickname for North Wales Residents, short for Gogledd, the welsh for north). Gogs is one of the funniest, most childish animations I've ever seen. I cry with laughter at each and every episode, even though I know what's coming. Oh, and watch out in this episode for a true Scaryduck-ism, as one of the sons is sick-inna-hedge.
The influx of computer animations means that the field is once again opening up. Pixar were first, but now Dreamworks have got in on the fun, and in recent times introduced us to Scrat. Scrat is a cross between a squirrel and a rat. His one purpose in life is to store acorns, presumably for the hard winter that is the ice age. If he finds an acorn, it is too much of a treasure to lose. He will do anything to capture it again. So for this week's pleasure, being a mindless comedy, I present to you from Ice Age 2, Scrat.
