The world's most egg-cellent animated (Huevo Cartoon) series finally cracks the U.S. big screen with UN GALLO CON MUCHOS HUEVOS! Toto, (voiced by Bruno Bichir) was born the runt of the litter. But, when an evil rancher threatens to destroy his home and his family, Toto must go from a timid young "chicken" to a brave and scrappy rooster. Toto and his friends (voices include: Angelica Vale, Maite Perroni, Omar Chaparro, Ninel Conde, Carlos Espejel) must band together on an egg-citing adventure that will prove that big surprises can come from little packages.
Obviously is intended for Spanish speaking markets (and specially Mexican, since it has a lot of double meaning expressions). I thoroughly enjoyed it, and once the DVD/BlueRay is out, I'll get it. It is hard to translate since 'eggs' (which is pretty much the title of the movie: a rooster with many eggs, the correct translation would be a rooster with many balls - where balls stand for testicles) is just a double meaning word... Many of the situations and expressions are very well used, but as I mentioned above, it is for the Mexican audience, I doubt the rest of Spanish speaking countries will understand the secret expressions. Even without understanding them, the story is OK and the animation is excellent. It is a pity that studio shut down after the termination of the movie.
