After watching the animatic, from a link I found ages ago (and was subsequently very difficult to unearth again after hosting was changed), a few fellow artists and I mused about what the film would have been like. There was a sort of mesmerizing, sad beauty to this little snippet of the story- perhaps I wouldn't have given it a second glance if it was just the stills released, or some concept sketches. Seeing the scene in motion, and hearing the lovely ballad are what really stick with me.
I sure don't know what the entire story of the film would have been, but I remember getting really nervous at the rumor of a CGI Betty Boop movie. Makes you wonder- "What if?"
