Nominated for a Sundance Grand Jury Prize, The Tune is Plympton's first feature-length extravaganza, hailed as "pure animated fun". Exploring the anxieties of rejection as an artist, The Tune is a strangely romantic comedy about Del, a struggling songwriter who must come up with the perfect ditty for slimeball mogul Mr. Mega, or run the risk of losing his job and girlfriend Didi. En route to meet his boss, Del accidentally stumbles into the surreal wonderland of Flooby-Nooby, where Elvis-impersonating dogs, nose-less cab drivers and sadistic bellhops each perform their own outrageous musical numbers! Is this crazed cast of colorful characters enough to inspire Del's greatest hit, or will he remain a flat note in Flooby-Nooby forever?
Peppered with an eclectic mix of blues, country, rock and other musical Americana, Maureen McElheron's Independent Spirit Award-nominated score is just one more reason why you should be whistling The Tune!
