Those Rossini Overtures Are So Much Fun
29 April 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

They got Heckled and Jeckyled. Hunters have a great time, shooting arrows at helpless birds. This goes on until a magpie shows up. He is fed up with this action and sets out to destroy the party. I thought the animation was colorful and captured the story just fine.
