Storyline

In one seal herd, a young seal pup with a rare white colouring named Kotick is born. When as he matures, he learns of the deadly threat that human hunters pose to the herd through their activities. While Kotick is able to save the herd on one occasion, he is fully aware that the threat is not over. Now he must take on the seemingly impossible quest to find a home for his herd where humans will never intrude. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Chuck Jones' take on Rudyard Kipling's story of the sea
9 April 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I love seals and I love animation from Chuck Jones. Based on the story by Rudyard Kipling about Kotick, a rare white seal, who grows from a sweet little pup into an adult who later saves the colony from cruel hunters...I am against seal-hunting myself and I do also love a good animal story. As with other Kipling stories like Riki-Tiki Tavi, and Mowgli's Brothers,Chuck Jones once again made a masterpiece with great animation, story telling and also adding Beethoven's 6th Symphony in the music mix.

I love the scenes when Kotick was a little baby, he's SO cute! especially when he's practicing barking.
