Skunk Fu! is an Irish animated series featuring a young skunk (Skunk) who wants to learn martial arts. He is helped by his friends Rabbit, Fox, and Pig, who are — wait for it — a rabbit, a fox and a pig. Skunk also learns from a wise leader named Pandanote guess what he is.The series lasted from September, 2007 to September, 2008. A total of 26 episodes in a single season.
Rashomon Style: "The Art of Remembering" has Rabbit, Skunk, and Fox all telling Duck how Panda was kidnapped by Baboon, with Panda later telling Duck the truth. Each of the first three's tales have a unique visual style.
Rabbit's story is Deliberately Monochrome (Limited Palette, with the red sky) and tells how the three of them were escorting Panda to negotiate a truce with Baboon. It also has Rabbit with a huge straw hat and wielding a sword (a Shout-Out to Usagi Yojimbo perhaps?), and it's always raining.
Fox's story looks like oriental scroll drawings, having Fox a beautiful ninja and involving Panda and the Silver Sword, useable by Only the Pure of Heart, being stolen. Although they win the sword back from Baboon in basically a round of Dance Dance Revolution, Baboon escapes with Panda.
Unless you give him a plunger with a rope attached to it.
What the Hell, Hero?: Yeah, he may have failed their test, but Heaven's punishment of Dragon was rather severe. Particularly given he was trying to use his powers to help others. Not only does this seem rather cruel, they ended up creating the series Big Bad.
It wasn't just failing a simple test. Dragon became so full of himself that he saw himself as being above all the other animals and was "punished for his arrogance." He was already on the road to being a Big Bad. Being severely burned all over actually minimizes his roll. If he hadn't been burned, he would have already killed off all of the valley creatures, himself.
Not quite, He ASKED the heavens if he could use his powers and they didn't respond, he didn't "defy" the heavens because they didn't respond.
