This animated musical comedy features the creative artistry of Bill Plympton and the excellent songs of Maureen McElheron. The story centers on Del, an aspiring songwriter working for Mr. Mega at Mega Music. One day, his boss storms in and gives him 47 minutes to come up with a major hit. If he doesn't, he is unemployed. He will also lose his love, the boss's secretary. In desperate need of an idea and wanting to write something meaningful, Del drives to the peaceful burg of Flooby Nooby and after many fantastical experiences finally finds true inspiration. This film really is unique with its ink and watercolor drawings, almost single-handedly done by Plympton, and has received wide-spread critical acclaim. It is definitely a must for lovers of fine animation.
