Animaland: Ginger Nutt's Bee Bother
This is the second Animaland short to star Ginger Nutt, and it also introduces us to his girlfriend Hazel Nutt. Ginger gets some character development here: when the three antagonists Corny Crow, Loopy Hare and Dusty Mole disrupt his date, he is revealed to have quite a temper.
John Wilson, one of the animators who worked on this and the other Animaland shorts, sadly passed away on Friday. Insightful retrospectives of his career can be read at Cartoon Brew and Michael Sporn's blog.
