Storyline

Noah, his family (wife, 3 sons, their wives), and various animals all help build the ark. The rains come, and the skunks barely miss the boat (not that anyone was particularly looking for them), but they manage to swim to it. After the rain and many lamentations by the humans, the sun returns, to the great joy of all. The ground appears, and the animals (and many new babies) disembark.

A little crowded in there, ain't it?
2 September 2013 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

Father Noah, a Santa Claus lookalike is carrying out the ark-building task that God gave him and plans to have 2 of every land animal shelter from the forthcoming flood on it (without resorting to eating each other, which is the most obvious flaw in this fable - and it is a fable). The animals are only too happy to help out with its construction, including birds of flight, which is kinda odd as they don't really need the ark.

The animation is colorful, and the animals are cute, but as usual with early Disney cartoons, the humans are quite ugly. The song they sing is forgettable, much like the entire cartoon overall.

Underlying message of the cartoon: don't believe everything the Bible tells you.
