A perennial favorite, our collection of 11 shorts for our youngest film lovers is sure to amaze and delight. “Peck Pocketed” follows a bird who devises a plan to get the luxury apartment of his dreams; a group of woodland animals learn capitalism and devise a plan to kick out the city folk from their territory in “Hedgehogs and the City;” and in “Mud Crab,” a little boy catches his first crab with his dad – but how will he get it out of its cage without getting pinched? These shorts and the rest of the collection are appropriate for all ages. In English.
