Anim18: A Celebration of British Animation
Big Bad Fox and Other Tales U (D)
From the makers of Ernest and Celestine comes a new trio of joyful animations featuring some of the wisest cracking animals that you could ever hope to meet.
This outstanding, laugh-a-minute collection of stories introduces us to a world of animals with identity issues, who are unable to fit into traditional roles in the pecking order and are constantly trying to outsmart each other. ‘A Baby to Deliver’ sees a rabbit, pig and duck delivering a new-born baby for a stork, only to discover what a huge responsibility it is. In ‘The Big Bad Fox’, the villain’s plan to steal eggs backfires when his dinner – the newly hatched baby chicks – believe he is their mother. And in ‘The Perfect Christmas’, animals take on a frantic mission to find a new Santa Claus.
This colourful cast of characters - all fast-talking, wise-cracking and witty - are bound to make you laugh and warm your heart, whatever your age.
