An off-beat animated love story of sorts as Polonius meets his match in Agnes the art lecturer
Animation & Artists Moving Image 1960 9 mins
An animated odd couple. Agnes – a prudish art lecturer who seems battier than a cricket season. Polonius – a slippery, womaniser with a moustache that has a life of its own. A match made in the off-beat comic brain of Bob Godfrey, the man who brought Roobarb and Henry’s Cat to life and won Britain’s first animation Oscar. 25 years on and Bob remade the film as an anti-Thatcher statement in Polygamous Polonius Revisited – also on the Player.
