I want to see more of this nonsense!
6 September 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I have only seen a tiny bit of "Panique au Village"--just the episode "Le Gateau" (The Cake), so please take my review with a grain of salt. In other words, I don't in any way intend to review each episode of this show--just give my impressions from a complete outsider who never got to see it when it aired on television.

I stumbled on this show rather by accident and was immediately struck by how dopey the show looked. After all, it was all made using brightly colored clay and children's plastic toys--talk about cheesy. In fact, there was little attempt to make it look sophisticated and I assume it was targeted to kids (here in the States, Nickelodeon channel used to have some shorts that were similar). It's all very simple and childish....yet oddly, it's also quite funny in an unsophisticated way. Some of the more artsy-fartsy folks out there might be put off by it, but it does make you laugh! In this silly episode, a horse, a cowboy and an America-Indian live together. The horse has made a cake but wants the others to leave it alone until morning. Well, the Indian just can't help himself, and so his roommate (the cowboy) knocks him around--and often the horse does this to both of them. And then, out of the blue, a bear enters the picture and it's all very slapstick and silly--too weird and silly to describe accurately here.

Overall, this is a great film to watch with young kids. They'll laugh until they puke and parents will find that it's more tolerable and interesting than the usual kids' fare.
