Web Animation: Mori No Ando
Behold the five-minute epic of Mr Ando, protector of the forest!Mr. Ando of the Woods opens with a bear asking a bee if he can have a lick of his honey but the bee tells him no as he had asked for the same yesterday. Peropero peropero peropero... Then Mr Ando arrives to solve their quarrels (penguin protector of the forest!) with violence! The bear and bee question whether or not Mr Ando is actually a human, but he denies their accusations and runs away, saying he has to go home to the South Pole since it is threatened by global warming.The bear and the bee visit the turtle and discuss (along with a fish) whether or not Mr Ando is a human or a penguin, mostly on the words he uses. Then the house starts shaking as a demolition man comes to develop on the forest. But Mr Ando comes to save the day! prrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr... on his scooter and carrying his penguin costume to solve the problem with violence! He then drives away declaring that he will always protect the forest.Looking onwards the animals declare that while they never learnt whether Mr Ando was a penguin or not, he would always be a penguin in their hearts. Then the fish sings about his love for Mr Ando. The end.A short animation made entirely by Voice Actor Takashi Taniguchi, the video gained popularity on the internet.
