This offbeat animated short from Korean director Oh-Sung Kwon tells the story of a talking piece of canine excrement.

Luckily, things take a positive turn for the lonely protagonist when he encounters a dandelion sprout and an unlikely friendship blossoms between the two. Based on a 1968 children's book by Jung-Saeng Kwon, Doggy Poo was awarded the prize for Best Pilot at the 2003 Tokyo International Anime Fair and won the Viewer's Choice award at the 2003 Big Apple Anime Fest. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

    If you can get past the fact that the hero is a pile of dog feces, this isn't that bad.

    Even Doggy Poos have a purpose.
    It's a little hard to watch, as it's just so simple and moves slow enough for small children to follow. But it's pretty good as a curio.

    You must see, if only to be traumatized by the Korean movie. Think "the little match girl" as seen on an acid trip.

    Worth watching for the novelty alone. An animated piece of poo, voiced by a child, talks to a mound of soil and "gives himself" to a dandelion.

    this claymation short focuses on a piece of dog shit who attains consciousness and ponders what its role in this universe is. it's quite childish actually but with a philosophical bent. might be good to watch if you're depressed or have some tendency towards scat/scheisse.

    A little strange, I'll admit... I had to laugh at a few points... But for the most part, it was surprisingly endearing and very sweet... Good visuals and beautiful music. For the most part, I'd say this movie is worth the 50 minutes it takes to watch. But for your own sake, ... read morewatch the Korean version, because the English voice acting was pretty pathetic...
