Sunday Shorts: Monstrous Wildlife

Sunday ShortsToday’s short is a spot-on parody of wildlife programs that would make the creators of Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom tear up and applaud.

Beyond its humor, the animation is clever and crisply done, and the educational value is immense. If you find yourself stranded in the desert, this video could save your life.

Why Watch? It’s funny, yeah, of course. But it also uses an iconic movie monster as its scientific specimen. I would love to say which one, but the impact of that oh-so-British narrator’s voice saying it for the first time is far too good to ruin.

What Will It Cost? Just five minutes of your time.

Does it get better any better than that? Only if we gave you an ice cream sandwich to eat while you watched. So check out Monstrous Wildlife for yourself:
