Bug Vaudeville (film #8 on Animation Legend Winsor McCay DVD (Lumivision, 1997)). [Category: Hollywood]

Well, you've heard of a flea circus, haven't you? So why not a vausdeville show performed by insects? If this had to exist, then McCay was the man to do it. Like all the cartoons on this DVD, this is beautifully animated and quite charming. The insect performances are simultaneously anthropomorphic and quite bug-like––McCay must have closely observed real insects before making this. Another great McCay early cartoon, with great soundtrack music, too.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: **. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: *****. Overall Rating: ****.
