Bear Time

Today in Slapstick: Soldier vs. Apron-Wearing, Flower-Growing, Helicopter-Flying Lady Bear [VIDEO]

Dum Spiro – HD (ESMA 2012) from Dum Spiro on Vimeo.

A gladiator on a quest to deliver a message has to get past a pair of bears first in this short film from students at French animation school ESMA Montpelier. It’s Looney Tunes-esque slapstick with the added benefit of the poor soldier being chased by a wooden helicopter equipped with squirrel grenades, which is the sort of thing you don’t see nearly enough of in old-school Saturday morning cartoons.

    Are we sure it’s a lady bear? I could go in several gender directions on this.

  • Magic Xylophone

    Isn’t that a legionary, not a gladiator?
