Where 'Wolf'?

Blot out this date on your calendars, film and animation buffs: March 26.

That's when PBS will air "Peter and the Wolf," the stop-motion animated piece that won the Academy Award for best animated short film two weeks ago. The 32-minute film is told without dialog. I'm most curious, though, about animator Suzie Templeton's earlier film, "Stanley," in which a man falls in love with a head of cabbage. Rotten luck, eh?

(Get it? Rotten?)

The film is slated to air at 8 p.m. (Eastern, i.e., "Correct" time), but as always, check before setting your VCRs and Tivos.

So why isn't it Peter and the Wiener Dog? We can be animated. We like music.

not that i'm casting any doubt on the ferocity of a weiner dog, but i don't it would have quite the same impact, pups...
