From TibbyH :

"Madeline" is one of the most adorable shorts I've seen. UPA does it again and brings a charming little story by Ludwig Bemelmans to the screen with elegance and grace. This cartoon oozes France (it's so French, Pepé le Pew should be jealous). The gorgeous watercolor backgrounds create a dream like interpretation of the country of love. And the narration provided by the lovely Gladys Holland seals the deal in this excellent short by one of animation's best studios.
