Beaver, Frog and Frog BFF is a throwback to classic 80s style animated paper puppet show. I was looking forward to watching this film, however half way through my attention wandered due to the repetitive music, all of the same tempo.

The story follows two talking, singing frogs, that are best friends, meet a new friend, the beaver, that joins them in this musical comedy about love with a strong underlying environmental message.

There are some funny parts to the story such as when the frogs thought they were separated for life, but were just on the other side of the log from each other. The beaver's French accent is a bit quirky and adds comedy value to his character. My favorite character is the raccoon. He isn't a main part, but he steals the scenes with his pop in cameos when he holds up signs saying what he thinks. Both the frogs are excellent singers. The lip syncing of the characters' mouths and their singing is well done. It makes you believe that the puppets are actually singing the songs. I like the unique paper puppets, especially the beaver with his realistic wet fur look. The set is a swamp located. The layers of the hills and musical reeds give depth to the set and the flies adds to the swampy feeling. The only shortcoming is the music, which is very repetitive. This film reminds me how small things can have a big impact on the environment and, although we may not think about actions we take on daily basis may add to these issues.

The message of this film is that we sometimes have feelings for each other, but don't admit it until it's almost too late. This theme applies to the frogs, but carries over to the bigger concern about the environment and the damage we are doing to nature. We need to take action before it is too late.

I give Beaver, Frog and Frog BFF 3.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 2 to 5. Reviewed by Katie F., KIDS FIRST! Film Critic

In the paper puppet musical, Beaver Frog and Frog (BFF), two best friend frogs lose each other when their pond is drained by builders, but are brought back together by an optimistic beaver who builds a dam that saves their environment and brings back their pond. BFF sparks a curiosity in creation care by shining a light on real animals who really help each other in nature!
