"Sid the Sloth," a hilarious co-star in the Ice Age animated feature
films, stars in this short.....and doesn't disappoint. This is one
funny sloth, and one humorous and clever cartoon. We get a "cameo" from
"Scat," too, which is always a good thing. Also, the artwork is
spectacular, at least on Blu-Ray. This really looks fantastic.
Sid's a camp counselor here and - you guessed it - a pretty inept one. The kids are wise-guys but Sid has a few zingers, too, giving one kid "a merit badge for whining." John Leguizamo does his normal superb job of voicing "Sid." He has a couple of his children doing voice-work in here, too, according to the ending credits.
In the end, we find out how Sid was instrumental in forming the Grand Canyon. I kid you not.
I saw this as a bonus feature on the "Horton Hears A Who" Blu-Ray DVD. If you have the DVD, don't miss this feature; you'll really laugh.
This short animation is about Sid the Sloth from "Ice Age", and his
merry and mischievous mishaps while camping in the wild woods with his
"Surviving Sid" is a fun adventure. Due to the length of the short animation, Sid is up to something silly every 10 seconds. This means a lot of laughs are packed into a short space of time, making it ideal for young children who lacks attention span to sit through a full length movie. I am impressed by the filmmakers' limitless imagination, as they can come up with such a fun plot. I enjoyed watching "Surviving Sid".

"Surviving Sid" is a 7-minute animated short film from almost 10 years ago that was released between the second and third full feature film. As the title already states, Sid causes a lot of chaos in here and the kids have to pay for it. Until they have enough of his shenanigans, that is. Scrat has a little cameo too, but I find him even less interesting. All in all, this is one of the less interesting Ice Age short films and sadly, most of them are not exactly a great watch. At least, this one is not an exception to the general rule. And admittedly, Sid is still fun enough to keep this from being a complete disaster despite the story being very mediocre. Anyway, i do not recommend the watch. This one is nowhere near the level of the movies. Thumbs down.
