Storyline

Botasky and Packy are private contractors, working in the Middle East, with support from a distant helicopter-mobile base. Their jobs are as "sniper" and "spotter", the spotter is the team lead (as is accurate military protocol). Their assignment is to extract two captives, an ally, and a local. The characters are 1. Rabbits (contractors), and 2. Camels (locals). Rabbits seem to have been chosen due to the Japanese word for Rabbit is Usagi, which can be interpreted to be U.S.A. GI. The Team must interpret the situation, and decide whether to extract the victims themselves or wait for further support. Things seem to be moving rapidly in a negative direction, so the Team elects to split up, and do the extraction themselves. They split up, with Packy going into a village to locate and pull the victims out, and Botasky providing over-watch and sniping support. The fighting is rapid, and smooth, with Packy showing a great deal of speed and agility. The sniping is rapid and smooth. Packy's ... Written by hankpac

Very unique animated short
12 January 2014 | by Finbar-1See all my reviews

Ask me how much I loved the concept of a (relatively) serious animated war story about a bunny snipers team in the middle east that includes head shots to camel terrorists. Just that description alone should entice you to see it.

The serious approach the producers took to a story line about hardened war vets (at least Packy the spotter and leader) compared to the not-so-serious premise of 2 bunnies as the main characters. They certainly play with this juxtaposition; the team is scoping out the village to weigh their options and you see regular fluffy tails twitching, they walk through the dangerous village with those floppy feet, and a cute bunny barking orders like Sgt Rock (for the younger reader, an old comic book WWII GI).

The only criticism is that Botasky's (the sniper) dialogue are a bit weak, he should have been as hardened and confident as Packy) but you can certainly forgive that slight issue as it added to the juxtaposition.

I only wish this was longer, maybe even a regular, on-going series.
