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>

Quite a sweet animated adaption of the original Rudyard Kipling story.
22 June 2008 | by (Scotland) – See all my reviews

First off, let me say that this is rather different from Rudyard Kipling's original story. However, it does have some dialogue from the original story and is in some ways similar.

Secondly, Chuck Jones did a good job on this. There are a few Chuck Jones-esqe touches in this short film including some sweet slapsticky moments. It is a different from his Looney Tunes works, I will grant you that.

Thirdly, I like this short film for the music from Beethoven featured, the interesting background animation, the character behaviour and the surprising similarity to Rudyard Kipling's story.

This short film is about the seals on Nova Scotia beach, who gather in their thousands every year. One day, a baby white seal is born and his mother believes he will stay white forever. He grows up to be strong and wise and manages to do something very special for the other seals...

I recommend this to people who like short animated films with cute animation and to people who like Rudyard Kipling's original story. Enjoy! :-)

7 and a half out of ten.
