The Tyee (British Columbia)

The moral of the story is just that -- moral. Add in a grandly swooping gesture of justice, and you have something that thrills the heart as much as it gently instructs.

Simon Miraudo

The fable is brought to life with some appropriately rough-around-the-edges stop-motion animation and soundtracked by Tchaikovsky's finest compositions (the various chickens, ducks and cygnets sing along ... with some new, avian-oriented lyrics of course).
