Adorable Little Girl Writes Stories That Come To Life In This Animated Short From The Netherlands

Our Adorable Past


The studio Polder Animation has created a delightful short film about an aspiring author. Titled, Now You Know It Anyway, it features a young girl named Robin who sits at a flea market trying to sell a few of her stories, and when she finds a prospective customer, does her best to relate the story. It reminds me a lot of the adorable crayon dragon video we posted last month. It certainly has the same spirit, that’s for sure. According to the video’s description, the short has been playing in The Netherlands before The Smurfs in theaters as part of the Ultrakort 2 initiative by The Netherlands Film Fund and Pathe.
