A Very Merry Cricket, 1973

Not much has changed in the nearly 40 years since Chuck Jones directed "A Very Merry Cricket".  There is still the mad rushing around from this store to that one, the short tempers, the car horns, and the endless mall parking lots ("…wherever did I park that car?" you very well could be asking yourself about right now.)  

But the perfect antidote to all that madness, is to take a 25 minute break, right now if you can, and enjoy this beautifully animated television special that was released late in 1973 after the success of Chuck's animated interpretation of George Selden's beloved "A Cricket in Times Square."  Merry Christmas!
