A sheep dances proudly in his southwestern landscape, until one day his wool is sheared and he is left naked. He's depressed and shy, until a cheerful jackalope comes along and shows him how to leap proudly and not to be ashamed.

Storyline

In the not too distant past, a lamb lives in the desert plateau just below the snow line. He is proud of how bright and shiny his coat of wool is, so much so that it makes him want to dance, which in turn makes all the other creatures around him also want to dance. His life changes when one spring day he is captured, his wool shorn, and thrown back out onto the plateau all naked and pink. But a bounding jackalope who wanders by makes the lamb look at life a little differently in seeing that there is always something exciting in life to bound about. Written by Huggo

Nauseatingly cute critters in the service of a non-story
8 November 2004 | by paulpitskerSee all my reviews

"Boundin'" is the cloying pap we had to endure to get to "The Incredibles." With its saccharine palette, its homespun voice-over and its fawning, bug-eyed and buck-toothed desert critters, this short lesson on the virtues of "jus' being yourself" seems calculated to endear or to infuriate, depending on your cute-factor tolerance. While part of me tried to appreciate it as a spoof of Disney sensibilities past, it didn't go quite far enough to function as parody, but plenty far enough to make me wish I was still back in the popcorn line in the lobby. When it was over, my young son leaned over and whispered "Well, that was annoying." So much for innocence.
