Adventures In Plymptoons! (2012)
Alexia Anastasio
When it comes to independent animators, Bill Plympton is the undisputed king. His illustrations have been featured in The New York Times, The Village Voice, Vogue, Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, Penthouse, and National Lampoon. Since 1981, when his political cartoon Plymptoons was syndicated nationally, he has become a major force and inspiration in the animation world. His work is recognized instantly: he's the guy behind the animated morphing heads, which became famous on MTV, as well as the opening credit sequence for "The Simpsons" episode Beware My Cheating Bart. Moving into motion pictures, Plympton earned two Academy Award nominations, has directed and animated over sixty animation shorts, live-action features, music videos, commercials and documentaries, including: ONE OF THOSE read moreDAYS, HOW TO KISS, 25 WAYS TO QUIT SMOKING, PLYMPTOONS, THE TUNE and MUTANT ALIENS He's the only artist to have animated six feature length films- all by himself. ADVENTURES IN PLYMPTOONS! goes deep inside the method and madness of America’s most independent animator, creatively incubated in his hometown of Portland, Oregon. Interviews with many of Plympton's collaborators, such as Tom Kenny (voice of SpongeBob SquarePants), David Silverman (Director THE SIMPSONS MOVIE), Terry Gilliam (Director, MONTY PYTHON AND THE HOLY GRAIL), Martha Plimpton ('RAISING HOPE'), Matthew Modine (FULL METAL JACKET), Ed Begley, Jr., Peter Jason, Moby and "Weird Al" Yankovic, offer candid and comic insights into the irreverent man who has become an international success by not selling out.
