* TheDeterminator: {{Determinator}}: The Kiwi, definitely.Kiwi. He's willing to spend his life nailing dozens of trees to the side of a cliff and jump off it just to achieve his dream, even if it lasts for less than a minute.

''Kiwi!'' is an animated short made for creator Dony Permedi's master's thesis in animation. It tells the story of a very determined kiwi bird who works to accomplish his dream. At only two minutes and thirty seconds long, it might have the shortest "start-to-[[{{Tearjerker}} tearjerk]]" ratio of any cartoon around.

Watch it on Youtube [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sdUUx5FdySs here]]. Bring tissues.

** Subverted - [[spoiler:he does actually have tiny little wings.]]
* BittersweetEnding: He gets what he wants in the end, but at a [[{{Understatement}} pretty steep cost]].

* HammerSpace: From whence he pulls an actual hammer, plus some nails.

** LastNoteNightmare: [[spoiler:The thump at the end.]]
* MoodWhiplash: After the you-know-what at the end, we are once again treated to the title screen "Kiwi!", which comes off as inappropriately cheerful given the circumstances...
