This is WAY TOO CUTE for me to handle. The armadillos are so freaking sad-cute... and the brazilian puma (Was that a puma? do we have pumas in Brazil?) is totally depressing. Great idea for a short film.
4.1 stars. Deeply charming, unforgettable classic from my childhood. Through some sort of anthropomorphic magic, the use of goggle-eyed, gawky-teeth, rubbery animal caricatures makes the human voices seem even more human. A brilliant idea superbly executed. I'd love to see this one in a large appreciative cinema, but it's cosiest at home on an old VHS recorded off the television.
