Western Animation: Tappy Toes

Tappy Toes is an obvious knockoff of Happy Feet.

Other than the fact that it's about a penguin learning to dance, the plot is completely different from Happy Feet, as it mostly deals with evil sea lions.

The animation is done by Renegade Animations; you might be familiar with their work on The Mr. Men Show and Chop Kick Panda.

Bobsheaux, did a review on the film, and states that it's actually a lot better than he expected to be.

Tappy Toes provides examples of:

  • Covers Always Lie: Like with Back to the Sea, the cover depicts the film as CGI. Where in reality, it's done in flash.
  • The Eeyore: Pingo's dad, Ozzie. Even to the point he didn't cheer his wife after Pingo was kidnapped.
    Gerty: Do you think maybe there's some way, somehow it survived?
    Ozzie: No, Gerty. No, I don't.
    Bobsheaux: Wow, way to keep her spirits up, you douche-noodle.
  • Flash Animation
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Thrasher and Gabby are Mr. Nosy and Mr. Small.
    • Pingo is voiced by Katie Leigh, who did Miss Daredevil.
  • Mock Buster
  • More than Meets the Eye: As stated before, the plot is different compared to Happy Feet.
  • Lampshading: Does this several times.
  • Prop Recycling: Some of the hats from the skua birds' trunk had some of the hats seen from The Mr. Men Show, including Miss Calamity's bonnet.
  • Those Two Guys: Buddy and Lou.
