Staff Review

Randy Yard:
The director's description conjures up images of a gang of raccoons, owls, and the like enacting revenge on their human oppressors, but what we really get is much simpler: a somewhat rushed version of The Creature From the Black Lagoon that tries its darndest to convince us that it's a comedy through over-the-top voice-acting and the most clich├ęd sound effects in history this side of the Wilhelm. Missed opportunities aside, this is still an enjoyable short, thanks in large part to some excellent animation (including one of the most creative emerging-from-water animations seen to date), but it's tough to imagine many people bookmarking this one for repeated viewing.
