I found this one a bit too cute without anything special about it to offset the cuteness.
7 September 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

The animation here is good, but not special, the story and script I found too cute by half and I was a bit disappointed by this one. Part of this can be attributed to the fact that I saw Ballet-Oop first, which is far superior and shows how this kind of thing should be done. I saw this a second time and just watched it without watching anything else on the tape that time. It's still too cute for my tastes, but it's a decent short. Worth watching. Recommended with above caveat.
