Calling out the author of Katy La Oruga for turning what is already an Anvilicious movie, into an anti-war message, claiming man only uses cargo ships to haul weapons and not food, medicine, or technology.
- He also calls out the hypocrisy of some of the film's messages, like decrying construction because its noisy, criticizing the use of animals as beasts of burden despite never bringing up if those animals are actually treated well, and criticizes city life despite the film being made by one of the biggest media producers in Mexico with writers brought in from Disney.
- And let's not forget his sincerely passionate cry for quality and effort in children's animation at the end of the video, set to the amazing Mass Effect theme for bonus points:
"Some of you may be wondering why I would even bother soapboxing for so long about this dumb little cheap animated movie, and really, thatís the most common complaint that people like me get. ďWhy are you wasting your time critiquing something thatís meant for children? Itís for kids, not for you! Why are you getting so worked up over it? Donít you have something better to do with your life?Ē
Understand this and understand this well Ė just because something is for children does not give it the right, the privilege, nor the excuse to have NO EFFORT PUT INTO IT!!!
A child audience should not be used to justify laziness and apathy in the production line!
Thatís what causes idiotic spin-offs and copy-cats with the same tired humor-by-committee every episode.
Thatís what causes half-hour toy commercials, especially those made for syndication with 5 new episodes every week, causing nothing but animation glitches, inconsistent writing, and hasty audio editing.
Is it not a great feeling to revisit something from your childhood and discover that it has more qualities that you never noticed when you were younger?
To find out that it not only could entertain the more basic tastes of a child, but also the more complex tastes of an adult?
To realized that the people behind the scenes actually gave a damn about what they were making?
Yes, a lot of what I cover on this show is meant for young audiences, and thatís an unfortunate result of the general opinion that animation is something meant for kids, but thatís a topic for a different episode. But I care because I love animation as an art form.
I care because I love good storytelling.
I care because I remember the movies and shows and people that didnít look down on me simply because I was a child.
I care about childrenís animation because I remember the childrenís animation that cared about me.
didnít care about its audience Ö and thatís why nobody cares about this movie anymore."
