Young Ondra has asthma and so his mom throws away his favorite toy: a musty old stuffed bear named Kooky. That night Ondra dreams that Kooky is determined to find his way back home from the dump. In the boy's fantasy, the bear gets lost in a forest occupied by strange animals and remarkable beings that he never heard of while living on the toy shelf in Ondra's room. And of course even in this small imaginary world, true good exists as does real evil, which Kooky must face up to in order to become a real hero. Written by

This is a brief review of the Czech Language version with English subs. Kuky Returns is a joy to watch, if initially hard to follow. But you soon get into the adventure! The dialogue between characters is great. Its essentially a buddy movie in a round about way. The style of filming/presentation is the main draw. - Im sure you've seen the trailer? if not check it out soon. The puppetry brings everyone to life right down to the last leaf. I am now waiting for the English Language version, as the Directors have employed some great authentic sounding voiceovers for this! apparently they too are Czech Speaking so have been able to reproduce the speaking parts as close to the original as possible! out soon I guess?
