  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Paul McCartney presents three of his favorite animation films, "Tropic Island Hum," "Tuesday," (based on the book "Tuesday" by David Wiesner) and "Rupert & The Frog Song" in "The Music And Animation Collection."

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a colorful picture, with animation styles that can resemble charcoal sketches and watercolor. Colors are bright and solid, and the images are sharp and nicely detailed. The creative and unique images offer satisfying dimension. There is little in the way of distractions, if only occasional scenes that appear a little bit soft or undefined. A few flecks of dirt are occasionally noticed in the source element.
