A Clockwork Benny
After a long day of working the night shift, Benny's ready to enjoy a day's sleep. At the same time, an operatic songbird wakes up and wants to greet the day by singing a la Pavarotti. Despite the bird's intentions, Benny is annoyed and does whatever he can to shut the bird up so he can sleep.
This cartoon won't have dialogue. Instead, the short will be driven by classical music and the bird's various opera tunes. It'll feature some music that played in the movie "A Clockwork Orange" like "The Thieving Magpie" or Beethoven's 9th Symphony. Plus we get to see a darker side of Benny you would never see in his other cartoons.
I have the feeling this may be a season hit if the show ever passes.
