4.0 out of 5 stars We All Have Our Purpose Feb. 20 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I received a promotional copy of Doggy Poo from a friend in the video industry who knows that I have a young daughter. I have to say that at first I was put off by the fact that the main character is, well, a dog poo, and wondered if this animation would be appropriate for a child of 3. After watching it on my own, I felt it was and sat down to watch it with my daughter. First off, this is a 'claymation' feature and the production values throughout are first class. The story and plot are well paced for small children who are obviously the chosen audience, and the piano-only soundtrack is very kid-friendly. There is nothing inappropriate in the plot and indeed, this is a family-friendly picture to be sure.

Doggy Poo is just that, and from the time he is 'born,' we find him questioning his purpose in life, to anyone or thing that will listen, including a hen, a bird (sparrow?) and a friendly pile of dirt. Much like Hans Christian Andersen's ugly duckling, our lead character's appearance (and seeming lack of purpose) causes him to be rejected, pecked and made fun of. But when all seems just about lost, a friendly girl weed grows up next to him and tells and tells Doggy Poo that she needs him for fertilizer in order to become a beautiful flower. And so he finds his purpose in life, and happiness in the process. My daughter very much enjoyed this movie and I'd recommend it to other parents of preschool and early school age children.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Tao of "Poo" July 8 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This movie is based upon a Korean children's story ("Kang Aji Ttong") written by Jung-Saeng Kwon, which won Korea's 1968 Children's Literature Award. Thankfully, this is *not* yet another example of bawdy, tasteless, gratuitous scatalogical humor (unlike a certain notorious "Christmas Poo"). Parents may find an opportunity to teach their children lessons about the purpose and meaning of life and environmental issues. Or if you're like me, you'll enjoy giggling with your kids at the novelty of a claymation movie that features the adventures of a LUMP OF POO! (*snort*) Kids enjoy scatalogical humor (at least mine do), and I don't mind them having it in small doses if it's fortified with some substantial thematic content...

I really enjoyed this film. I thought it was a silly title at first but know i feel a kind of zen and the feeling that everything has a purpose in life. I felt inspired.

Come on it's a movie about CRAP. People are seriously running out of ideas. They should just keep rereleasing the classics.

5.0 out of 5 stars a tender and moving story Aug. 29 2005
By atlactress - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This is a wonderful story that my child and I loved watching together. It is a tender and moving tale that we have watched over and over again. At first the title made me a little skeptical to say the least, but after hearing the first part of the music introduction I knew this would be a favorite for years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars A charming animation sure to please children and adults. June 10 2005
By D. Keleman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
The kids will appreciate the title; the parents will appreciate the content. This is a wonderful animation using the age-old stop motion technique. All I can say is my child loves it and, well, so do I.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't let the title fool you March 3 2005
By Kahmren - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This is a very touching story, that in reality has nothing to with being just a doggy poo, or CRAP as other reviewers call it. It has everything to with the human experience, and what people feel about themselves, and their place in life. It may seem slow paced in places, but the purpose is to give you pause to think about what has just occurred. The simple score is touching and really helps underscore the point of the story. Do not prejudge this film; you can get a lot out of it.
