This ain't yer average Disney cartoon

America has long been one of the few accepting countries of adult animated movies for a variety of reasons. Once again, it takes a foreign production to drive this point home. If you, the viewer want an example of a superior animated movie, place "Dot and the Whale" on your list right now!
