Summary: This short was nominated for an Academy Award for Animated Short. There will be spoilers ahead: This is an excellent adaptation of a children's story about a mouse who is walking through the woods to get to a tree with acorns.
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...
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.
Summary: This short film based on the popular children's book was something I was really annoyed to miss when it was broadcast at Christmas, but when it was shown again I wasn't going to miss it again.
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.
Summary: I read the Gruffalo when i was a small kid (im now 14) and at Christmas I noticed this was on T.V. and decided to watch with my family. I was impressed with the animation and the characters voices fitted the parts well.
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.
A simple enjoyable story told in a very effective and enjoyable way

Summary: Having narrowly avoided a predator herself, a mother squirrel calms the nerves of her two young children by telling them a story of a plucky young mouse who travels deep into the woods in search of food only to find predators at every turn ready to trick him into becoming their next meal.
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...
