Bunny, an elderly rabbit who uses a walker, is in her kitchen one night baking a cake. A photograph from her wedding day is on her wall. A pesky and persistent moth bangs about the kitchen. She shoos it outside, turns off the porch light, and returns to her baking. The moth finds its way back into the kitchen, she bats it with a wooden spoon, and it falls into the mix. She stirs it up, pours the batter into a pan, and pops it into the oven. But the moth isn't done: it has a different mission, turning the oven into a portal, and inviting Bunny on a voyage of reunion. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Truly impressive animation, but was there a story?
27 November 2002 | by LebowskiT1000See all my reviews

First of all let me say that this short film had some of the most impressive computer animation I've ever seen in my life. Truly impressive and mesmerizing.

I do have one major complaint though. The story is friggin' stupid! I'm sorry but my personal belief is that an animated short film should NEVER try to be dramatic, stick to pure comedy and cuteness. Maybe it's just that I was expecting something else having seen "Ice Age" before "Bunny", but I was just waiting for something funny to happen and it never came. The whole oven/portal thing was lame! Maybe it's just my ignorance, but if it wasn't for the commentary on the "Ice Age" dvd I wouldn't have understood what the writers/animators were trying to say at all.

I'm sorry, but I thought the story was just boring and stupid, but the animation was excellent. I will say this though, the little moth was pretty cute (and extremely well done). In any case, I would definitely still recommend seeing this short film (despite my dislike for the story), due to the animation and it's extremely short length. Anyhow, I hope you enjoy it. Thanks for reading.
