HALF-A-PANTALOON is the second “chapter” of Beastly Bards. In the style of a public service announcement, it warns the viewer of the perils of wearing shorts in professional situations. The lesson is: even charming monsters can’t get away with sartorial blunders.

This short came out of my abiding mistrust of short pants and my superficial disapproval for those weirdos that wear shorts all year round, even during Canada's six months of winter.

Canadian treasure Jayne Eastwood (Chicago, Hairspray) narrated Half-a-Pantaloon, and you're sure to recognize her voice from countless animated series.

Produced in partnership with our awesome friends at Varipix, Half-a-Pantaloon is the second “chapter” in the silly rhyme collection “Beastly Bards”.
