This year marks the 30th anniversary of the short animated film The Snowman, adapted from Raymond Briggs’ book. Briggs also wrote Fungus the Bogeyman which I mentioned in a recent post. The film was especially marked by Howard Blake’s music, especially the gorgeous Walking in the Air.
Some of the original team are now bringing a sequel to the box at Xmas time: The Snowman and the Snowdog. I don’t know who is providing the music this time, it hasn’t an IMDB listing to consult.
While this is a film about a dog made of snow rather than one who runs around it, I hope it will illustrate to Munson how easily I could make a mini-Munson out of the drifts of shed hair I’ve accumulated. Hmmm, maybe we could rename the blog The Hairman and the Hairdog - although on second thoughts it might attract the wrong audience.
