The Ostrich is another entertaining cartoon from David Hand's Animaland
30 July 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This is another cartoon from England's David Hand Animaland that I enjoyed. It's basically the adventures of a father ostrich and his just born son with the son proving to be the more smarter one (a printed intro mentions that the ostrich loses his intelligence when he gets older). The older one gets in such scrapes like getting his head "stuck" in a tree, twisting himself like a pretzel, and being scared by a drawn wall lion before "falling" for the drawn female ostrich on that same wall. We are then led to the number "Don't Hide Your Head in the Sand" which ends this highly amusing short in a most entertaining manner as we see many of those drawings suddenly coming to life. On that note, I highly recommend The Ostrich.
