  1. Hello Sean, I saw your film “Pargu” during the Midnight madness of the KLIK! Festival in Amsterdam. It was great and from far the best short of the night. Also, I looks at other animation you made and I was wondering what is the music at the beginning of Cocky Pussy?

      Thanks alot! I’m glad you liked it. The music in Cocky Pussy is called Beach Parade by Armando Trovajoli. I’m not sure where it’s originally from, but I got it from the soundtrack for Curb Your Enthusiasm.
