He Was Once (1989) [Short]

USA (MIFF 1990 , Fiction)
Director: Mary Hestand

"Uh oh - Davey's talking to the dog again." Davey sees a bear on the way home from the movies. Dave's dad spanks him for telling tales. Only Goliath, the headless doggy-footstool with exceptional talents, can save the day.

The legacies of Red Grooms and Gumby inform this nutty live-action cartoon look at family power struggles and values, from the producers of last year's favorite, Superstar.
