Amusingly active despite no real characters
27 February 2004 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

A wildlife documentary sets out to look at the industrious species of the beaver, looking at them at work in the forest. However one of the beavers is keen but without much ability and only serves to get in the way of the others. He gets sent to a distant tree to keep him out of the way - but little do the others know how important his role will be.

When a Warner Brothers cartoon comes on with no recognisable stars it is often a time to start to worry - but not always. Here the film barely even has a character to focus on, never mind a well known one, but it still manages to be amusing even if it is never out and out funny. The film just uses the various beavers in exaggerated ways and most of the time it made me chuckle a little bit. The second half of this short sees the keen beaver becoming the focus, but the material still looks at the wider `story'.

The characters are colourful enough and have a nice rough acerbic edge to their attitudes and it makes the film that little bit sharper compared to those cartoons with the horrible cutesy characters. Overall this is quite enjoyable without really being laugh out loud funny, but still worth watching.
