A sheep dances proudly in his southwestern landscape, until one day his wool is sheared and he is left naked. He's depressed and shy, until a cheerful jackalope comes along and shows him how to leap proudly and not to be ashamed.

Storyline

In the not too distant past, a lamb lives in the desert plateau just below the snow line. He is proud of how bright and shiny his coat of wool is, so much so that it makes him want to dance, which in turn makes all the other creatures around him also want to dance. His life changes when one spring day he is captured, his wool shorn, and thrown back out onto the plateau all naked and pink. But a bounding jackalope who wanders by makes the lamb look at life a little differently in seeing that there is always something exciting in life to bound about. Written by Huggo

Short but very sweet - 75%
16 January 2005 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

Curious one, this. Expecting to see Pixar's "The Incredibles" and I'm given this for free. Not every day you get two for one at the cinema.

In truth, it's not that big a deal because this is a short animated song by Bud Luckey (who sounds like the guy from that annoyingly catchy Honda advertisement about diesel engines). It concerns the story of a sheep who dazzles all the animals around with his brilliant coat of white wool. But after being sheared, the sheep turns to a jackalope (a what?) who offers some advice. Basically, it's a morality tale about keeping your chin up when life gets you down.

Technically accomplished and very kiddie-friendly, it is as sweet as the bag of jelly babies I took into the cinema with me (and did I feel stuffed afterwards!). Cute little song, enough kooky animals to make young kids laugh and polished animation but ultimately over-shadowed by its bigger budgeted cousin. Shame, really, as you'd have to be a hard-hearted bastard not to like this.
