George Griffin

Flying Fur (1981) 16mm, color, 7 min

Genre: Animation, Experimental

Keywords: Dance

FLYING FUR is a cartoon in search of itself: silly animals are on strike, a square man is doing a jazz dance, an angry house is chasing a wolf who turns into a carrot. These and other micro-episodes are woven together in synchronization with a 'Tom and Jerry' sound track (itself a frenzied pastiche of Basie and Bartok). While taking a firm position on violence, racism, and excessice coffee drinking FLYING FUR is essentially a love song to animation."--G. G. "Griffin is an experied animator who has worked in many styles, but this is the film which best integrates his graphic and conceptual interests."--J. Hoberman, Village Voice.
