“And would you jump off a cliff if someone told you to?” The merry dance of innovator and imitators in this animated short puts the age-old parental warning to the test. Vera Linnecar had been working in animation since the 1940s, and was one of the pioneering women making independent short films in the 1960s. Based on a story by Stan “Henry’s Cat” Hayward, the film toured the world as part of a programmer distributed by ASIFA – an international animation association.
