Reviewing Bill and Coo for a major magazine, an otherwise restrained critic was moved to describe the film as "by conservative estimate, the God-damnedest thing I've ever seen." Conceived by producer/comedian Ken Murray as a showcase for George Burton's trained birds, who'd previously been featured in Murray's long-running Los Angeles stage review +Blackouts, the film is set in the mythical all-bird community of Chippendale. The characters -- hero, heroine, villain -- are all birds, displaying the most human of emotions and impulses. When the romance between lovebirds Bill and Coo is threatened by the evil Jimmy the Crow, all Heck breaks loose, culminating in Bill's rescue of Coo from a burning building. As a bonus,the feathered featured players sing, dance and play musical instruments! The winner of a special Academy Award, Bill and Coo was later reissued with a new introduction by the enterprising Ken Murray.
