Delightful short aimed at children that works very well for adults
5 January 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This short was nominated for an Academy Award and deservedly so. The good doctor is a dentist. He also happens to be a mouse. The short revolves around how he manages to treat a fox's tooth without becoming the main course! Good script and voice characterizations make this an enjoyable effort for not only children but adults as well. Worth the effort to track down. Recommended.
