Product Description:

Renowned cartoonist Bill Plympton has been heralded as a dark humorist, political satirist, and artsy provocateur. This compilation includes the entirety of his animated work from his student days in the 1960s to his station IDs for MTV, summing up to some 60 minutes of eclectic, eccentric color-pencil animations. PLYMPTOONS is a collection of Plympton's signature cartoons re-created as very brief animated bits. ONE OF THOSE DAYS, YOUR FACE, 25 WAYS TO QUIT SMOKING, and HOW TO KISS provide surreal and often violent visions in the spirit of Terry Gilliam's animation for MONTY PYTHON'S FLYING CIRCUS. Some of the best works are less well known, including BOOMTOWN, a short musical about military spending during the cold war; DRAWING LESSON #2, about the romantic misadventures of a pencil mark; and the poetic and charming LUCAS, EAR OF CORN, about the life and death of an earnest ear of corn who is filled with philosophical curiosity. Plympton's funny and inventive work proves delightful again and again and again.

Plot Synopsis:

The short works of renowned animator Bill Plympton are all collected here in one volume. Limbs stretch to impossible lengths, faces contort, rubberlike, until unrecognizable--these events are par for the course in Plympton's uniquely scribbly pencil-drawn universe. This volume includes his first attempt at animation from 1968, as well as his advertising spots for MTV and Nutrasweet. In the words of Entertainment Weekly, Bill Plympton "is Salvador Dali reborn as an ear, nose, and throat specialist." (Note: This volume does not include Plympton's feature-length project THE TUNE.)
