) -- Herman Cain's campaign released a nearly six-minute cartoon video that rehashes the points of his recognizable 9-9-9 tax plan.

The video -- "9-9-9 The Movie -- Slaying the Tax Monster" -- shows a machine-like "dorky, mechanical monster" that totters around with "tattered red tape" attached to it, flanked by "squirrely bureaucrats."

"So what would happen if we scrapped all 82,000 pages of the current tax code and simplified things with Herman Cain's 9-9-9 plan?" the video asks. "The economy would accelerate faster than Barack Obama on his way out of town."

The video pokes fun at legendary investor Warren Buffett and former Vice President Al Gore as it criticizes the pitfalls of the current tax code.

Under the cartoon, Cain's Web site encourages viewers to donate to the campaign to "help Herman Cain slay the tax monster."
