Thoroughly sweet. I have loved William Wegman's work for eons. It is nice to see this gem in your collection.

"Alphabet Soup" doesn't quite break new ground -- "Sesame Street" was equally droll and educational at the same time -- but the letter-forming dogs are just beautiful and there are many chuckles in between, especially when the dressed-up dog-humans break character to gobble hot dogs or lap soup straight from the bowl.

Odd how this is more satisfying as a quirky film on the Alphabet using the Wegman Weimerainers. The more static images of the dogs in letter constructions and the occasional costumes have the same eccentric joy that the pictures he is famous for seem to possess. I enjoyed it immensely.

The Wegman dogs are always a delight. I'm looking forward to my Grand's visit so I can share this film with them.
