Second Star to the Left (2001) Rated NR

A hamster, a rabbit, and a guinea pig are on a journey to deliver a present that was lost by Santa. Starring Hugh Laurie, Barbara Windsor, and Mark Williams.

This short story about the Christmas season is cute. The little animals going on a journey to deliver a forgotten present is adorable. The story is interesting, but the characters don’t engage us. The animation of the landscapes and animals has the look of an older film and isn’t that bad. The voice acting, for the most part, isn’t bad either. What I struggled with most in this short is the lack of depth. It doesn’t go deep into any message, and it doesn’t have a real message about the holiday season. That, to me, makes it not worth the watch.
