Trivia

The "male" bovines having udders was explained in the October 2006 issue of Nickelodeon's official magazine, "Nick Magazine". In the letters page, one reader asked about the anatomically-incorrect cows(bovine) and whether or not it was intentional or not, and the magazine explained that the movie's director "thought it would be funny for the male cows(bulls) to have udders".

this film is fine and some parts impress
23 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I think this film was marvellous and would really be fun for a family to watch. The CGI effects in these are acceptable (stunning effects for environments) and look 'friendly' and funny at the same time. It has a few scenes with great action and music which brings it alive to show great heroism of some characters however this film loses a few points from my review because i think in some ways the story was a bit similar to Disney's 'Toy Story' and how the film is about a hidden world of characters but the film does not go into too much depth for this nor does it for the tragedy of a death like 'The Lion King' as pointed out by others. It has good jokes in this and is funny sometimes how it is crazy with certain originalities.
