  1. Lively characters, snappy dialogue, and snazzy visuals make this an uncommonly fine animation.
  2. 80
    Surprisingly engaging, as is the Paul Simon theme song, and the film is enlivened by flashes of humor just rude enough to delight older children.
  3. 75
    An energetic and eccentric animated cartoon.
  4. Pleasant enough and its ecological, pro-wildlife sentiments are certainly welcome.
  5. 67
    Provides adventure and humor in sufficient spoonfuls to make its pro-environment medicine go down smoothly for the target audience of grade-schoolers.

    Fans of the animated wildlife adventure show will be in warthog heaven; others need not necessarily apply.

    I saw this in the cinema when I was 10. :) While it's not Oscar worthy by any means, it was a cute, well-animated and well-thought out film that my friend and I really enjoyed. Expand
