This is an excellent animation about an animator who is haunted by one of his characters, a pink elephant. Somewhat nightmarish in style, and although it is resolved with a happy ending, it is too scary for many younger kids who might have nightmares about cartoon characters. Older kids and adults will love it, and appreciate the truly unique animation style. After being stalked by his own cartoon character, the character does finally catch up with him in an elevator, and is not angry, but sad. The animator draws him a female counterpart, and it is a happy ending for all.
Based on a true story about an overworked animator who is haunted by one of his characters. The film is a horror-comedy love story with elephants and a playful look into the (exhausting) creative process.
