Love those little creatures
26 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I cannot explain why I find these creatures so fascinating. It's like manatees. Who could love sea cows? I like them both.

As a fan of the show Meerkat Manor, I was anxious to see the film of the beginning. I was not disappointed.

Whoopi Goldberg did a great job narrating what we can only suspect was the thoughts of the Whisker family as they went about their daily lives in the Kalahari Desert. To see the birth of Flower (known to all who watch the show) and see her beginnings was really fascinating.

Outstanding cinematography and a great score make this an enjoyable film that the whole family will enjoy.

This really ties up some loose ends and gets me anxious to the next season which, like Star Trek, seems to go on and on with The Next Generation.
