A flying hippo seeks a pond. A little koala wants to hop like the kangaroos, and a raucous mob of elephants throw a party. These and other wild times in the animal kingdom bounce to the jazz of Swedish quintet Oddjob.
Writer/Director: Peter Stanley-Ward, Writer: Natalie Conway
Helped by flying mechanical creatures she’s made, a young inventor joins forces with a pint-sized superhero to defeat the town bullies.
Writer/Director: Lena von Döhren
High up in a maple tree a little bird cherishes and nurtures the green leaves of its home. Then a hungry caterpillar sets its sights on the appetizing leaves.
Writer/Director: Julia Pott
From a forthcoming Cartoon Network© series. Glitter glue, singing marshmallows, and dance contests figure prominently in Julia Pott’s hilarious take on adolescence at its most awkward.
