The message on greed is only OK due to the excesses but the animation and imagination behind it all is a delight, 18 January 2006
Author: bob the moo from United Kingdom

Based on a collection of dated educational stickers (pictures and words) that he found in a junk shop, director and writer Run Wrake fashions a morality tale that sees a rabbit becoming the object of desire for a young girl and a young boy who is keen to impress her. When they kill the rabbit they find it contains a small gold idol who turns irritating house flies into jewels. Eager to get as much as they can the pair try to use the idol for their own ends.

I am not old enough to remember the cards used as the visual basis for this film but I have seen them and I was totally captivated by the look of the film and by how cleverly the film used these images as an inspiration for the story but mainly for the animation. It looks great and it engaged me to the point where the wild sweep of the story wasn't a problem. It does work as a warning against greed but the excesses are a bit damaging to the message because it is more about the former than the latter. However it is still a good tale albeit it one that is more adult than the bright and educational animation would suggest.

Overall this is an OK short film in regards story but it is a supremely interesting one in terms of animation and imagination. Yet another good example of why you should make the animate! short films a regular viewing habit.
