User Reviews

 
French animation
21 October 2020 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

A theatre troupe of animals perform three stories. The wrap-around is the animals on a theater stage introducing the stories. The first story has a stork crashing and leaving the baby with the animals. The second story has a fox stealing three eggs and raising the chicks as his own. The third story has the animals trying to save Christmas in their own ways.

The animation style is simple and there are some good fun here. It's generally a nice time. The second story is fun and the first introduction is great. I do have reservations about the premise of the theater. Essentially, the animals are actors playing roles in the stories. It keeps the animals from developing a consistent personality throughout the movie. It would be easier for them to simply be these characters. I can't name a TV show where the actors play different characters in every episode. At most, the lead character gets put into different roles in Dollhouse and Quantum Leap. The premise keeps the stories disjointed from each other.
