  • Summary: "The Gruffalo" is very pretty animated short, with a beautiful visual style and a charming story, which has all the classic elements from many fairy tales and fables. I liked a lot the aesthetic used for the characters in this short: Their cartoonish and stylish appearance made a good contrast with...

Perfect adaptation to the book

  • Summary: It's even better than the book. This is everything that 'Where the Wild Things Are' should have been, but wasn't. The animation style is interesting, and I just love the dialogue and voice acting. We have a four year old, and he just loves this film.

Cute and enjoyable....

  • Summary: I enjoyed this short film quite a bit, though of all the films nominated for Best Animated Short this year, I think it and "Let's Pollute" have the least chance of winning the Oscar. We'll see--the winner is to be announced next week. The film is odd because it's is a story within a story.

  • Summary: I absolutely loved The Gruffalo. It is a little too short, but all the same it is still superb. The animation is beautiful, very true to the illustrations of the book, plus the characters are well modelled and move convincingly and the backgrounds and colours are ravishing.

A cute animated short about a little mouse who outsmarts his predators.

  • Summary: This came on BBC1 on Christmas Day, and like Wallace and Gromit before it, I recorded it so it could be watched later. I've finally got around to watching it, and I was pleasantly surprised. With a solid voice cast voicing the animals, the rhyming dialogue is sweet and never annoying.

  • Summary: My son (who is 8) and I really enjoyed this. The animation is fantastic, the voices are great! We've been huge Gruffalo fans for years and I was worried that they would add to it, or take something from the charm but they did this brilliantly.The animal characters are well thought out, each given...
