'''''Kirikou et la Sorcière''''' ('''''Kirikou and the Sorceress''''') is a 1998 French animated film, directed by Michel Ocelot, loosely based on a West African {{fairy tale}}.

It tells the story of a tiny baby boy, named Kirikou, who is born in a spectacular way (all by himself, without effort of his mother nor outside help) and can speak and walk immediately after being born. After a couple of questions, he learns that a wicked sorceress, Karaba, has cursed the village and devoured all the men and boys, except his uncle, who is on his way to fight the sorceress. [[spoiler:He tricks the sorceress, saves his uncle as well as the children of the village (twice!!), brings the water back to the dried-up spring and, among other things, discovers the sorceress' true motivations]].

There's lots of controversy because of the depiction of nudity, although the real pre-colonial Africans did walk that way in a completely asexual atmosphere. But since America has terrible issues with [[NippleAndDimed women's nipples]], the film wasn't released in the United States until 2002.

* ConstantlyCurious: Kirikou's defining trait.
* DarkestAfrica

* ImprobableHairstyle: Karaba's star-like afro.
* {{Interquel}}: ''Kirikou and the Wild Beasts''
* KidHero: Kirikou

* TheMusical: ''Kirikou and Karaba''
* {{Mooks}}: The Fetish (''no'', not ''that'' kind of [[FetishFuel fetish]]).
