Excellent little short
11 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

This is a great short that's included on the Finding Nemo DVD.

It features a scientist, Jean-Michel Cousteau, who's been studying the sea for most of his life. It teaches a lesson about the coral reef, while providing a bit of comedy from 3 characters from Finding Nemo. I enjoyed it very much.
