I enjoyed this short film a lot--and isn't that why you watch a cartoon?
12 February 2008 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I have recently been watching gobs of Academy Award nominated animated shorts. In 1997, QUEST won the award and it was amazing visually. However, while WAT'S PIG was made in a more old fashion style (using claymation), I much preferred this film to the final winner. Part of it was that for a claymation film, it was gorgeous--with terrific backgrounds and characters. And, even more importantly, I enjoyed the film--and this should be the reason we watch cartoons and other animated films. It was funny and well-written.

The plot itself is a lot like a fairy tale. At the beginning of the film, the King and Queen have twin boys. One is kidnapped and the lost in the ensuing chase. The boy is discovered and raised by a pig farmer--unaware of the boy's identity. Years pass and the prince is a rather poor leader. Then, by chance, his brother (a pig farmer whose best friend is a pig) enters the picture to save the day.

See this film--it's good for a laugh.
