Frustrated snowman

2D Cel animated commercial from Joop Geesink's Dollywood (1949) for Persil detergent.

2D Cel animated commercial from Joop Geesink's Dollywood (1949) for Persil detergent. A snowman gets depressed when he thinks that someone, other than himself, has covered the world in a blanket of white. The doctor has the solution.

TRIVIA

In the years 1942/43 Joop Geesink has worked briefly with Marten Toonder and they lead a animation studio together. They parted ways and Geesink solely focussed on doll-animation. With this movie, Geesink showed he can also deliver animated films. Director Henk Kabos came from Toonder animations and has made himself very useful as illustrator.

TRIVIA-2

Presumably, this was the only 2D animated movie of Henk Kabos. Later he concentrated on the art-direction of puppet-animated movies. Also remarkable was that this particular film was made in the expensive American Technicolorsystem in the post-war years .
