an animated tale of the Yellow Polka Dot Bikini kind
Bikini by Lasse Persson This delightful tongue-in-check Swedish animation takes the Paul Vance and Lee Pockriss novelty song and initial Brian Hyland worldwide hit as its basis. Only in doing so, it sprinkles it with queer dust and transforms it into the dreams of a boy who wants to feel like a girl on the beach, wearing that ever-revealing bathing suit.

In short, what we have here is seven minutes worth of sheer animated fun, courtesy of the reaction from the boys' mother to her son's girly appearance, together with the look of desire from the Venice Beach style muscle men to the new girl on the shore, wearing that all important Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini!

Cross-dressing fun and very silly - undoubtedly. And yet it has to be said that this animated tale in its own playful way, is sure to bring a smile to your face. Need more be said?
screened as part of the 20th London Lesbian & Gay Film Festival 2006
