They’re Frightfully Happy Except When They’re Dead

The Blackheart Gang’s “The Tale of How” animated short is basically what you could expect if you gave Roald Dahl and Dr. Seuss a bunch of cough syrup and then let Danny Elfman write the musical score for what they cooked up. And yes, that’s a compliment.

    Wow. This is wonderous stuff! I’d throw Burton and perhaps some Terry Gilliam in there with the others and the cough syrup, too. I want more!
