Product Description


Being a wealthy ex-Beatle has its advantages, and with his enchanting Music and Animation Collection, Paul McCartney shares his creative privileges with the rest of us. "Macca" served as executive producer, composer, and voice artist for this delightful trio of shorts, and animation director Geoff Dunbar deserves ample credit as well, along with his talented team of collaborators, since their work here is every bit as impressive--and arguably more entertaining--than anything in Fantasia. "Tropical Island Hum" discreetly advances the late Linda McCartney's vegetarian cause with its charming sing-song by a variety of animals who've been neglected or abused by humans... including a frog who lost a leg to "some French guys." Dedicated to Linda McCartney's memory, the dreamily amusing "Tuesday" (based on the award-winning children's book by David Wiesner) offers the fantastical vision of jubilant frogs on flying-carpet lily pads, floating merrily along on their nocturnal adventure, entering the homes of unsuspecting humans and, just as quickly, hopping to earth again as their magical night gives way to sunrise. Amiable amphibians also star in "Rupert and the Frog Song" (originally produced to accompany McCartney's 1985 film Give My Regards to Broad Street), in which the beloved children's book character, Rupert the Bear, witnesses the once-in-a-lifetime vision of frogs performing a glorious midnight concert. All three of these wonderful shorts celebrate nature, animal welfare, and the imaginative innocence of childhood, and McCartney (working with Beatles producer George Martin) can be proud of his role in their creation. --Jeff Shannon

4.0 out of 5 stars Still magical after all these years... May 3 2004
By Lee
This DVD collects three short films directed by Geoff Dunbar based on ideas/music/songs by Sir Paul McCartney: "Tropic Island Hum," from 1997; "Tuesday," from 2000; and finally "Rupert and the Frog Song," from 1985.
"Rupert and the Frog Song" is the real gem on this collection. It follows legendary comic character Rupert the Bear as he explores the country one night and finds a special gathering of frogs. I bought the DVD because of this piece; it was such a huge favorite of mine as a child I just had to revisit it and see if it still held the same magic it did as a child. I have to say, it still holds up very well. The song in it, "We All Stand Together" is a great song written by Paul and arranged by the Beatle's producer George Martin.
"Tropic Island Hum" is a fun little cartoon that Paul and his late wife Linda produced. Paul and Linda do nearly all the voices. It has a very good song at its core but doesn't quite capture the magic of Rupert. Interestingly, it was one of the last cartoons ever to be produced purely by hand animation where all the coloring is done by hand. Nowadays all the coloring in "hand-animated" films is done with a computer after the outlines are drawn by hand.
"Tuesday" has almost no dialog and features only a musical score with no song. It follows a group of bored frogs one Tuesday night as their lily pads take off and fly into the town so the frogs can have a night of fun for a change. I think it's the least successful of the three films because there are no main characters to follow. But it is a very atmospheric cartoon with great music. It's based on a storybook and follows the pictures in it almost exactly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paul McCartney - All Together Now! April 17 2004
By BeatleBangs1964 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Paul McCartney is a man with a myriad of talents and this latest work only supports that claim. The animation is high caliber work and the gently worded stories are sure to captivate readers of all ages.
I like the way respect for all forms of life is emphasized in this video. Paul McCartney, a long time advocate for animal protection does an extraordinary job of imparting love for nature and its creatures in these short animated stories. This is very family friendly indeed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Let's be realistic about this... May 27 2004
Looks like the Macca "over-raters" are at it again. When this one came in the mail, I gathered the whole family (wife + 3 young kids) around the TV for what we expected would be a great time. After all, we all enjoy the "Rupert" laserdisc with "Oriental Nightfish" and "Seaside Woman." Everyone was pretty underwhelmed with this disc. Sure, Rupert is still great, but the kids were totally bored with the two new videos. We didn't like them much either--music or animation wise. The good thing is they were over quickly, the bad thing is this set is WAY overpriced for the short content and what you are getting.
Why in the world this doesn't include Seaside and Nightfish is beyond us, unless they were afraid of showing up the new titles. Which they do, especially Seaside Woman both musically and with its creative and distictive animation style. It's not like there was no room left on the disc for them...
At the same time we got "The Point" dvd. Everyone loves it, cost less than half the price of this one with more than twice the time of entertainment. Macca used to give people great quality and value for their money. Judging by the last several years and products, I'd say unfortunately those days seem to be over. Without Linda to guide him, I hope he gets "The Point" of not just being greedy again someday soon.
