A tale about Tinny and his dog act
20 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a stop motion animated film done by the same people who did Wallace and Gromit, which is the Aardman Company.

It's directed and written by Nick Park's friend, Steve Box.

The story focuses on a short man name Tinny who's talent is doing a Dog Act with his fellow Dogs. The trouble is people didn't want to see Dog Tricks, they want movies.

Tinny grew guilt and same that they don't like his act. His girlfriend tries to cheer him up, only she has other things in mind, such as becoming a successful actress. She loves Tinny, it's just she wants to do her career in show business.

She stars with Hugh a rude and revolting movie actor. He hates Tinny and demands that he quits his dog act.

The plot to this animated short is a little dry in a way. The dialog is a bit flawed with slightly bad English accents in which it's slightly hard to understand sometimes.

It's still a nice short to watch. Just not as worthy as Wallace and Gromit or Creature Comforts.

There's nothing too inappropriate in this short, just know that if a kid's watching this he or she wouldn't understand the story too well, due the the dialog.

My rate: 7/10
