THE GRUFFALO (Television Release UK 2009)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

The Gruffalo
—terrific British short film for adults and children—uses great voice work, an excellent storyline, high quality animation, and an easily assimilated message about how smart one has to be in the wood’s world of animals to deliver its compact and classy entertainment. Great direction by Directors Max Lang and Jakob Schuh. It’s a sweet watch.
