Bruce Barry and the team at Wacky World Studios easily improve upon their freshman effort, "Don't Miss The Boat", with this newer parable.
When Roach Rangers Squiggz and Cosmo are ready to reject Flutter for an addition to the troop, Grandpa Lou takes the opportunity to teach her about faith, in God and oneself, by recalling the event of Daniel in the lion's den as only he can recall it. He remembers how he and Nana made friends with Fang (Toby Mac), a bling-coated bat, and Miesha (Nicole C. Mullen) a lion cub also struggling to fit in with her den-dwelling pride. She must make the choice of whether or not to stand up for right, or simply devour new prisoner Daniel (Michael Kinsey) wrongly condemned by King Darius (Bishop T.D. Jakes).
As in the first video, the lesson comes across with some clever writing, and without being too preachy. Unlike the first video, however, the mood is much lighter, With hip-hop magnate Mac and songstress Mullen playing effective roles. Jakes cameo is a lot of fun, and Wacky World's animation team scores a quality hit visually, with comical and appealing character designs and all kinds of engaging environments. Hard to believe it's just above a half hour, until of course, it ends! Watch with your kids. Peace, out.
