Editorial Reviews

Featuring more than 20 acclaimed, award-winning shorts plus never-before-seen footage, PLYMPTOONS compiles the best and the brightest work of Academy Award(r)-nominated animator and cult-hero Bill Plympton, master of the animated black comedy world. During a career spanning over 30 years, Plympton's creativity and talent have earned him countless accolades and a worldwide cult following. This uproariously funny collection brings together the very best of his early work including commercials, animated spots and short films.

A journey through this political-cartoonist-turned-animator's canvas of animation, PLYMPTOONS: THE COMPLETE EARLY WORKS OF BILL PLYMPTON offers up a delicious dose of mutated humor, from Plympton's first film created during his college days, "Self Portrait", to the Academy Award(r)-nominated "Your Face", his first solo effort.

3.0 out of 5 stars Plympton déjà vu February 7, 2006
By E.Levi
This DVD features:

Self Portrait / The Turn On / Lucas, The Ear of Corn / Boomtown / Drawing Lesson #2 / Your Face / Love in the Fast Lane / One of those Days / How to Kiss / 25 Ways to Quit Smoking / 245 Days / Noodle Ear / Human Rights / Environmental / Trivial Pursuit #1 / Trivial Pursuit #2 / Sugar Delight #1 / Sugar Delight #2 / Previous Lives #1 / Previous Lives #2 / Plymptoons.

Sounds familiar? Yes! you are right! exactly the same content as in Sling Shot's "Plymptoons - The Complete Works of Bill Plympton (1991)".

Is there something really different there? Oh! I guess you can consider the new title of the DVD an the new cover design (courtesy of New Video). "Plus" two Exclusive Bill Plympton Documentaries; Sketch Gallery; Animator Biography; Interactive Menus; Scene Selection.

If you already own Sling Shot's version of Plymptoon works be warned. But if this is the first time you hear of this title... it could be a "new" opportunity to (re)discover Bill Plympton.

I hope distribuitors find more resources to make a DVD reedition worth.

Bill Plympton's animation style never ceases to amaze me, although I really didn't care too much for his amateurish student films.

2.0 out of 5 stars "Your Face"... and some other stuff... July 17, 2006
By svf
"Your Face" from 1987 is three minutes of inspired jittery scribbly animated brilliance: it's strange, funny, even somehow grotesquely lovely. But the rest of this stuff? His previous efforts range from mildly amusing to embarrassingly amateurish. After "Your Face," Plympton increasingly coasts along on endless variations of the same two or three ideas. And in the meantime, unfortunately, he animated one of the worst music videos I've ever seen: Peter Himmelman's "245 Days." Plus, the "bonus feature" documentary profiles of Plympton are unwatchably bland and boring. Should have combined the best of this material with Plympton's feature-length film The Tune to create a much more appealing Plymptoons DVD.
