When Wal is frantically cleaning up before Aunt Dolly arrives, the kitchen cupboard below the sink is closed. He then picks up the calf and shoves it into the now open cupboard, closing the calf inside. After grabbing Horse from the fridge, on his way out, the cupboard is open again and missing a calf.

One of the few non-disney animation films that are truly great. This story of rural New Zealand follows the adventures of a farmer, the local kids and a dog- Dog. The only animated feature new zealand has ever produced is a classic. Exciting, hilarious, scary it has everything. The unique style of the comics works well on film and the atmosphere created by the dingy colours at some times is truly immersing. See this movie now!
