Ha, animals--we humans rock!
22 December 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This film shows a little boy as he watches various animals move. In each case, the animal is master at a certain kind of movement and the point seems to be that although animals can outperform humans in many of these tasks, because of our intelligence and ingenuity, we can use tools and machines to out-perform them. Take that, stupid animals! Heck, and if we can't out-perform them, we can always create a weapon to kill them (though this point was NOT made, thankfully, in the cartoon).

All this is done through relatively simple animation that still manages to please because the animals and particularly the child are illustrated in such a cute manner. While this is not a film you'd probably want to see again and again, it's a nice educational piece funded by the National Film Board of Canada.
