Title: Plenty Below Zero
Series: Fox and Crow
Running time (of viewed version): 6:58
Commercial DVD Availability: -
Synopsis: Crow tries stealing food from fox, ends up impoverishing them both.
Comments: Non funny text opening, to provide for contrast. Color, but some of the available footage is black and white. Yodeling fox. Foxes and crows are both carnivores. Shadow shot. Columbia loved unusual background angles. Gentle skiing chase sequences... Crashing off camera saves on animation. Crow's initials are E.S.; get it, like escrow? Yeah, it doesn't really go anywhere. Bowling scorecard. Ghost snow fox looks great. Super hot foot. Crow destroys fox's food, ends up being saved by fox; fox accepts the paltry food crow has to offer instead of eating the crow. Sugar kept in a safe, and paranoid about it.
The backgrounds are great, and the character designs are solid, but the lack of storytelling ability really inhibits this. I also think the audio (audio quality and the style of music) also causes problems.
