Made by Mole Hill (I am unsure if that is a pseudonym or his parents were pranksters) during the pandemic lockdown, The Owl And The Pussycat won the Short Animation BAFTA in 2021. It is, of course, based on Edward Lear's nonsense poem about two romantically linked animals who go to sea in a pea-green boat and end up dancing in the light of the moon - the moon, the moon - as newlyweds. As the story is 150 years old and I have little knowledge of animation techniques, there is little I can say about the film (or why it was deemed worthy of the BAFTA). The golden colours are nice. There, I said something. Hill, who has worked in animation since the 1980s, apparently made the film in his garage to mark the sesquicentennial of the poem. If you like the BAFTA-winning animation The Owl And The Pussycat by Mole Hill be sure to rate it and share it.
