I was surprised at how much I liked this Ice Age cartoon the first time I saw it. I laughed aloud several times; kudos to the animators for using imaginary space well and for coming up with a scenario that didn't just feel like tired schtick. Shame about the ending, though that didn't bug me as much during my first go-around with this short.
As for Episode I--OH GOD, OH MAN, OH MAN, OH GOD. See my piece for Press Play.
