Sounds familiar? Yes! you are right! exactly the same content as in Sling Shot's "Plymptoons - The Complete Works of Bill Plympton (1991)".
Is there something really different there? Oh! I guess you can consider the new title of the DVD an the new cover design (courtesy of New Video). "Plus" two Exclusive Bill Plympton Documentaries; Sketch Gallery; Animator Biography; Interactive Menus; Scene Selection.
If you already own Sling Shot's version of Plymptoon works be warned. But if this is the first time you hear of this title... it could be a "new" opportunity to (re)discover Bill Plympton.
I hope distribuitors find more resources to make a DVD reedition worth."
