Animator Mark Flood credits this film with helping him achieve some of the success that he has had in his animation career - when looking up this film one day, he read that it had won a prize at the Chicago International Children's Film Festival, prompting him to take a look, and several months later, his film The Freak Next Door (2012) was accepted and screened at the festival after he submitted it upon reading about it.

This is quality, and its danish. I'm very proud. The story is great, all the basic rules for an animated film is upheld. The combination of computer animation and animation the old fashion way, with pencil and paper, is very good. It's not that obvious when it's one or the other animation type, like in e.g. "Prince of Egypt" or "Anastasia". Though these two titles are very good animated features they do suffer from this problem. This is very nicely done is this film.
