Comments

From Jerry Edwards : The second of the four seasons cartoons. Various insects do dance routine. One praying mantis looks a lot like Gumby. One odd routine is a pair of dung beetles with their "ball." Some flies, who tempt fate by using the spider's web to bounce the spider around like a trampoline, end up eaten by the spider. Mainly of interest to me as part of the four seasons set of shorts. Do enjoy a bit of the fun weirdness listed above.
