Might unintentionally make the case for vegans even though the credits say some of the creators are burger lovers. Cows really do react with fright when they get to the slaughterhouse.

The animation was great, but the plot seemed rather trite.

Dang! Learning life's lessons the HARD way!! Sometimes, it really IS better to listen to mum!

Poignant and timely - the grass is always greener on the other side until you step over.

Sometimes the only thing that can stop us is seeing the actual thing for ourselves. I loved this short!

I believe this movie should be show extensively to all this generational screen-consumers, phone and media addicts who are resembling the calf in this story. Lovely and insightful short movie.

A really sweet short from one of the great minds of modern animation, Bill Plympton. I loved the bright color palate and the universally relatable story. Great entertainment for kids and adults alike.

Besides entertainment, it might make kids want to be vegan.
