Hot Dog (2008)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Third film in Plympton's wonderful series has our hero canine wanting to join the fire department. They turn him down but he hops a ride with them to a building that is on fire where he gets a shot to prove himself but of course nothing goes right. This is another great little gem from Plympton that once again features that wonderful looking animation and most importantly has an intelligent and clever story to tell. This third film isn't nearly as violent as the previous two, although we do get one good, dirty joke when the dog is trying to put a small fire out but can't find any water so he must use his urine to try and put it out. Another wonderful job is when the firemen have saved a woman but keep her bouncing on the device just so they can look up her dress. The animation this time out is also a lot darker than the previous two films but it's still quite beautiful to look at.
