Storyline

A giant panda named Pancada works at a boxing club. He has dreams of one day becoming a professional dancer, and is in love with a waitress named Beth. His boss, a polar bear named Polaris, is scheduled to fight a large bear named Freak Teddy. Pancada visits his dancing instructor, Master Xin, who teaches him about loyalty. The following day, Polaris has found a black costume, and tells Pancada to wash it for him. The costume shrinks in the wash, resulting in Polaris having the appearance of a panda bear. As Polaris begins the fight with Freak Teddy, Pancada goes to a dance competition, wherein he ends up winning. Polaris wins the match against Freak Teddy, and because of his panda-like appearance, the club's patrons mistakenly congratulate Pancada for being a powerful fighter. Pancada, having won the dance competition, erroneously believes that he is being congratulated for his dancing skills. Before Polaris leaves for a vacation, Pancada himself enters the ring to fight Freak Teddy ...

Quotes

Grizzlepuss: [Regarding a newspaper's front-page story about a masked boxer, who's identity is unknown, and who is challenging Freak Teddy to a fight] Lucky he's wearing a mask. That way no one will know who he is when he inevitably bites the s-stuh.

Almost as bad as Ratatoing!
22 December 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It is very difficult to decide which is worse between Ratatoing and The Little Panda Fighter because they are both so terrible. And it is very easy to see why they are considered Video Brinquedo's- who have to be The Asylum of animated studios- worst movies. Ratatoing perhaps is slightly worse but that is saying next to nothing because The Little Panda Fighter shares exactly the same problems. It has been billed as a rip-off of Dreamworks' Kung Fu Panda(not one of their absolute best films but still highly entertaining and well-made, everything The Little Panda Fighter is not) and it is, however that isn't even the worst of the problems, perhaps even the least. The animation is really hideous, again with forced character designs, flat colours(even badly coloured crayon pictures have more refinement) and backgrounds that are lacking in any kind of fluidity coming across as static instead. The action set pieces have no impact, awkwardly animated and no excitement in the movements. There is some terrible writing too, the wit/humour is juvenile and sometimes crude and the amount of heart, fun and charm is next to nothing. The story is basically Kung Fu Panda but much more predictable(making absolutely no effort at originality), Kung Fu Panda didn't feel heavy-handed, it was funny and had heart and at least it didn't bore. The Little Panda Fighter only succeeded in being dull and a chore to watch. The characters have no appeal at all from their personalities to how they look and act and the voice actors sound as though they didn't even try, they sound so lifeless. All in all, awful and one of the worst animated movies there is, and this is coming from a life-long fan of the animation medium. 0/10 Bethany Cox
