Del, a hard-working songwriter, is trying to write the perfect song for his slimeball boss, Mr. Mega, so he can keep his job and his girlfriend Didi. As he rushes to work, he gets lost in a cloverleaf highway and ends up lost in a town called Flooby Nooby, where he meets the towns singing and swingin' mayor, an Elvis-impersonating dog, a noseless cab driver, and a psychotic bellhop as he tries to get to Mr. Mega's office to deliver the song.
The Tune, Bill Plympton's first animated Feature, premiered September 4, 1992, after runs at Sundance and Cannes. It incorporates earlier shorts released by Plympton, including The Wiseman (1991), Dig My Do (1990), Tango Schmango (1990), and Push Comes to Shove (1991), and some critics have observed that this content seems out-of-place with the original material for the film. Its music was composed by Maureen McElheron, a longtime friend of Plympton's who has composed the music for most of his films. The Tune was nominated for a number of awards in 1992 and 1993.
