Dot and the Very Depressed Bunny. (Not a patch on the Kangaroo...)
12 July 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Dot and the Kangaroo was my all-time favourite movie as a kid (though it mysteriously vanished one day - possibly my family being driven mad by its being watched endlessly) but Dot and the Bunny was a very weird, very poor follow-on. It had none of the plot, gaiety, excitement or merriment of Dot and the Kangaroo, it was just a bit slow and grey, and the depressed Bunny, clearly suffering some kind of Bunny mid-life crisis, was an inappropriate character for a children's' film, I feel. The atmosphere of this film is really, really strange. Having said that, I haven't actually seen it for over a decade. Has it been warped in my memory?
