Dear Mr. Newland,
You are some sort of funny genius. That is all.
- Juuchan17

I... er... geez, there are no other words that I can give this short. I really don't feel like spoiling this little gem of "what-the-heck-ery", but the title actually says it all... and it should be a must-see for any animation fans out there.

Animation-wise, it's not that bad, even for an amateur. It's very simple, but detailed when need be. It's not perfect, but it's not supposed to be. It's better than what I could do, so I give it props. The music works too, and that's all I can say.

I also have to agree that the credits are just as funny as the actual short. It reminds me of Monty Python a little bit, and the obvious jokes in the credits always get a chuckle from me.

In the end, everyone should see this at least once. That's just all I can say about this. See it and you'll get why it'll make you go "What the heck did I just watch.... and why do I want to watch it again?" I know that I have done it!

MY RATING: 3 STARS

Bambi Meets Godzilla is one of the most pointless things I've ever seen. It's basically about a small deer that gets, well, I'm sure you can guess the rest.

The credits are especially funny, and they seem to build up towards a big climax, not that you get one of course!

There's not much to say about this short, other than watch it and decide for yourself.

Yes, the credits are hilarious and so is the music. Everything is just so funny. Though I must admit as soon as I saw the animation I knew how "Bambi meets Godzilla" was going to end. My favorite line on the credits is “Marv Newland produced by—Mr. and Mrs. Newland”.

The best credits sequence ever, no doubt!

A somewhat surprisingly famous short, considering that if exists something that were not to be taken seriously in anyway, it's IT!

Definitively, not to be taken seriously, don't do that. Just watch it.

Totally random, totally idiotic and totally... funny?

Actually I never expected to find this piece of animation here (or actually discover his background history to be exactly).So as was pointed in the introduction it is indeed a pointless film, but you probably will find yourself laughing a while. See it if you had the chance since it's a very rare film.

P.D: "Bambi meets Godzilla" was used as very "graphic" example of how the culture of merchandise and economic values tends to focus in the interpretations and opinions of people in a incredible variety of ways. This was said by an economic analist (whom I don't even recall his name) in the analytic documentary "The Corporation" based on the critic analysm of the machinery corporations of America. May sound weird but it was indeed a great example and attached perfectly with the acid humor of the documentary.

All animation students everywhere, who have stayed up long, feverish nights trying to finish their final project, have a great appreciation for this film. We're only sorry that Marv did it first.

The credits are fabulous. My personal favourite being "Marv Newland Produced by: Mr. and Mrs. Newland".
