Editorial Reviews

Paul McCartney proudly presents a collection of award-winning animated films and soundtracks including such favorites as Tropic Island Hum, Tuesday, and Rupert and the Frog Song.

"The ideas that turned me on as a kid are the same ones that fascinate me today. I don't know that we ever outgrow our passion for adventure, humor or romance. There's a childlike quality to the art of animation, and, married with a bit of music, it seemed the perfect way to bring these magical stories to life. I hope you enjoy watching them as much as I enjoyed making them."

Special Feature(s): Tropic Island Hum: Line Tests, Layouts & Storyboard; Rupert and the Frog Song: Line Tests, Layouts & Storyboard; The Making of Tuesday; Trailer; Widescreen

Format: DVD
This DVD is a mixed bag, containing three different cartoons created over the last 20 years. To thoroughly vet the offerings, I viewed this disc with my three expert cartoon critics, ages 9, 7 and 6.
I've been anticipating "Tropical Island Hum" for a few years now since the project was previewed during the "Flaming Pie" sessions. And the problem with expectations is they are often dashed. The cartoon is virtually plotless and merely a showcase for the eponymous song, a tune that is subpar by McCartney standards. The kids found it pretty dull too. A giggle here and there, but not much beyond that. Sadly, the closing credits were almost as long as the cartoon (and more enjoyable).
"Tuesday", on the other hand, is a wondrous cartoon full of magic, delight and hosts a splendid soundtrack. And the kids enjoyed it very much too. This enchanting story about the nocturnal travels of lillypad flying frogs is beautifully drawn and almost worth the price of the DVD on its own.
"Rupert and the Frog Song" is the golden oldie on the disc, dating back to 1984. It's been 15 years since I last saw that cartoon and it was a joy to finally share this with my children. They'd heard the tune "We All Stand Together" often on Daddy's stereo and delighted in actually seeing the "frogs" behind the music. It was a great cartoon two decades ago, and remains so today, absolutely enchanting my little guys.
The major flaw with this disc is the price -- half the run time of a regular feature at 1.5 times the cost. The collection could have been a bit less expensive, or alternatively have included the cartoons "Oriental Nightfish" and "Seaside Woman" which were collected on the early Rupert VHS. Still, it's only money, and considering the kids will wear out the disc viewing the last two cartoons over and over, on a cost per viewing basis, it'll prove to be a safe investment.

Format: DVD
This DVD collects three short films directed by Geoff Dunbar based on ideas/music/songs by Sir Paul McCartney: "Tropic Island Hum," from 1997; "Tuesday," from 2000; and finally "Rupert and the Frog Song," from 1985.

"Rupert and the Frog Song" is the real gem on this collection. It follows legendary comic character Rupert the Bear as he explores the country one night and finds a special gathering of frogs. I bought the DVD because of this piece; it was such a huge favorite of mine as a child I just had to revisit it and see if it still held the same magic it did as a child. I have to say, it still holds up very well. The song in it, "We All Stand Together" is a great song written by Paul and arranged by the Beatle's producer George Martin.

"Tropic Island Hum" is a fun little cartoon that Paul and his late wife Linda produced. Paul and Linda do nearly all the voices. It has a very good song at its core but doesn't quite capture the magic of Rupert. Interestingly, it was one of the last cartoons ever to be produced purely by hand animation where all the coloring is done by hand. Nowadays all the coloring in "hand-animated" films is done with a computer after the outlines are drawn by hand.

"Tuesday" has almost no dialog and features only a musical score with no song. It follows a group of bored frogs one Tuesday night as their lily pads take off and fly into the town so the frogs can have a night of fun for a change. I think it's the least successful of the three films because there are no main characters to follow. But it is a very atmospheric cartoon with great music. It's based on a storybook and follows the pictures in it almost exactly.

Format: DVD
You can see the Disney influence from the outset in the way McCartney introduces the videos just as Walt used to do.
There are three short animated features. Tropic Island Hum is the first. It is a story about an island where animals find sanctuary from hunters and other forms of abuse. It is light, whimsical, and fun. Some of the artwork is quite astoundingly beautiful: look at the sunsets. This is a lovely tribute to Linda McCartney who was a great animal protection advocate.
Second up is Tuesday which is about a day when frogs go on an extraordinary adventure. This is based on an award winning book of the same name by David Wiesner. The animation includes voice work by Dustin Hoffman. This is the best of the three. It is surreal, funny, and completely charming. The music is absolutely stunning and I hope it will be released. This one is just plain exquisite.
The third video is Rupert And the Frog Song featuring the song We All Stand Togther and voice work by June Whitfield who plays Edwina Monsoon's mother on Absolutely Fabulous. I love the song and love the video,
Bonus features include a McCartney interview and short "Making of" films. Don't miss the cartoon Paul and Linda dancing on the beach. What a beautiful and touching image! This is completely delightful and magnificent. It is a must have!!!!!!!!!!

Three video's, all three with frogs. Why? Why not.

The first video is the long awaited "tropic Island hum". Nice very nice indeed. I watch it together with my son of 18 months and he loves it and wants to see it over and over. Dad loves it as well. The characters are nice, the song is happy and lovely. And the "hum hum hum" of four elephants is amazing!

The second video is tuesday, this is pure magic! I love everything about it. It's nice for kids as well as grown ups. I can't realy explain it but the combination of a weird story beautiful music and the "Pink Floyd" (pigs) ending makes it a nice little journey as paul would describe it probably.

The third video is "We all stand together" Still a great video and the song is love here around the house.

The extra's are very nice as well.

Thanx again Paul.
