Product Description

The late Jonathan Harris (Lost In Space, A Bugs Life) makes his final performance as 'The Bolt' in the humorous satire of 'How The Grinch Stole Christmas'. Harris is joined by Bill Mumy, Angela Cartwright and Marta Kristen, his former castmates from Lost In Space, as was well as Tress MacNeille (The Simpsons, Futurama).

Playing film festivals in the USA, Australia and France from 2009-2011 the film won numerous awards including Best Animated Comedy (Dragon*Con 2010).

Bonus features include: Isolated musical score, Audio out takes, storyboards, early animations by 'Bolt' animator Adny Angrand and a new short film titled 'No! Not the Chicken!'.

Writer / Director John Wardlaw has also included his award winning animated short Chessmaster Theatre and its sequel Bloody Revenge both of which ran in the Spike and Mike Festival of Animation

The DVD also features 12 music videos by the band Anti-M, most of which were directed by Wardlaw.

These films are not rated and contain adult language and situations.

Review

It had a great animation style, clever and slightly naughty story and was totally enjoyable! --D.C. Fontana (Star Trek / Television Writer, Producer)

I laughed my nuts off!-- David Gerrold (author and television writer)
--David Gerrold / Dorothy Fontana

Hilarious send-up. Very entertaining. Chuck Jones would have loved it. --Jack Bossom, Animazing Spotlight

Lightning 'Bolt'. Writer-Director John Wardlaw set out to make a parody of the animated Dr. Seuss Classic 'How The Grinch Stole Christmas'. What he ended up with years later was an award winning festival favorite that would also serve as a tribute to its star (Jonathan Harris). --Moving Pictures Magazine

One review stated that there was very little content on this disc and that it should be priced at $3. So I thought I would clarify a few things.

The main feature of The Bolt... is 7 minutes. However there are 20 plus minutes of bonus features related to this film including the film with an isolated musical score, early animations of the entire film, audio outakes by the cast featuring Bill Mumy, Angela Cartwright, Marta Kristen, Jonathan Harris and Tress MacNeille.

There are 3 additional animated comedy shorts on this DVD, about 11 more minutes of content. Two of these films, Chessmaster Theatre and Bloody Revenge were featured in the Spike and Mike Festival of animation a few years back. This is their first time on DVD.

The other bonus material consists of music videos for the band Anti-M.

This brings the total content time to just over an hour. Is it over priced? Perhaps a little. Should it be $3? If you have ever independently produced and released a film on DVD you know that you can't really sell a DVD for $3, it would be the same as giving them away. $2-$3 would be a good price for a Video On Demand of this project.

This DVD was made available because people at film festivals were asking how they could get a copy. Making it available on DVD seemed to be the logical choice.

As the Director of this film I hope this use of the review space helps to clarify a few things.
Enjoy

The final work of Jonathan Harris is a bittersweet remembrance of the consummate character actor, threaded onto a slightly naughty tale of Christmas. You can hear the joy and amusement as Jonathan growls and smirks his way through a retelling of the Grinch that delivers the nuts and bolts of this delightful short animated film.

An added bonus is the addition of a scene featuring Bill Mumy, Marta Kristen and Angela Cartwright, the first and only collaboration between Harris and his former Lost in Space costars. Tress MacNeille contributes her voice to the film as well.

This is a work of love both by John Warlaw and his team and the actors. Bawdy without being raunchy, fun without being forced, this is a DVD that should proudly sit on the shelf of fans of Lost in Space, animated short fans, Christmas film fans and of course, fans of that Chuck Jones cartoon that Wardlaw so gently and loving skewers.

This short was a belly-laugh-out-loud experience from beginning to end. Fabulously creative premise. This film delighted audiences in the 2010 Seattle Truly Independent Film Festival. A great gift to anyone any time of year.

For some great Seattle short films order:
