"Hamilton Mattress is brought to life by a very talented team of British artists and animators, including the great Barry Purves. Don't expect Wallace and Gromit (after all, it's made by different talent with different styles and different ideas), but this thirty minute made-for-TV special about an Aardvark on the search for something more in his life has enough flash and feel-good fun to spare. Certainly not his finest film overall, but watching a work by Mr. Purves is always a rare pleasure. The commentary track and documentaries are nicely done and informative as well.
