Movie Info

This offbeat animated short from Korean director Oh-Sung Kwon tells the story of a talking piece of canine excrement. Doggy Poo becomes forlorn when no one wants to be his friend on account of him being a mass of smelly waste. 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

    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.

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

    "A little dog leaves the title character by the side of a road, wondering why it exists. Over the course of several months, Poo meets a leaf, a hen, and a lump of soil, who assures it, "God has not created you for no reason." But little Poo feels rejected until a dandelion sprout accepts it as fertilizer." Yes, I rented it. Yes I watched it. Yes, I'm admitting it. (OMG!) If you can get past the fact that the star of this film is a pile of dog poop and remember that it was made for six year old Korean children, its not all that bad. (OMG! - did I just say that Doggy Poo isn't all that bad???) The animation, which is stop-motion claymation, is actually pretty remarkable. And... (get this!) There are DVD extras including; The Making of Doggy Poo (OMG!) and even a Doggy Poo music video (OMG!) Honest! I'm not making this crap up (pun intended). Note: Now that I've rated it two & 1/2 stars, every movie that I've rated two stars or less is now officially "lower than Doggy Poo". (Take that John Rambo!!!)

    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.
