animate! synopsis

Grotesque Wild West goes vaudeville. Prairie tales in stark, dark ink to outrage and illuminate.

Six 3-minute episodes:

Slim Pickin’s – poor ole’ Josh finds he’s the victim of false promises.

That’s Nothin’ – a few of the boys get together in the saloon.

Murder! – an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. The silent majority get their way.

High Noon – Clint and Chuck face each other out in the final showdown.

The Conformist – “If you want to fit in around here, you best do what’s expected of yer.”

Outrage – The whole of Joseville is disgusted by the behaviour of their young folk.

long synopsis

A series of six, three-minute films which comment on contemporary values through a reinterpretation of the myths of the old Wild West. Mulloy’s witty and acerbic fables, drawn in brush and ink, contain scenes calculated to outrage horses.
