Title: The Moth and the Spider
Running time (of viewed version): 4:26
Commercial DVD Availability: -
Synopsis: Spider tries to eat feminine moth.
Comments: Extremely short. Truncated beginning is not a surprise. Boring bunch of butterflies (maybe moths), probably ere hard to animate. Old smoking caterpillar. Something that looks like a mosquito in a top hat drinks from a flower. I've seen this self flagellating hobo spider before (tho he's more like a gorilla here). (Ever notice old timey hobos wore suits more than modern business men?) Moth hooks up with fly soldier at the end, quite abruptly. There's a bit where the spider climbs a ladder, then is out in the air; I'm not sure if it was an error in layout/animation, or if there's a web unseen because of print fade. Spider eventually kicks himself in the ass with a boot with a nail sticking out of the toe.
