RABBITS UNDER THE SHED cover image
The animated musical film Rabbits Under The Shed is very unique. With rabbits talking and vegetarian hawks, this is sure to get you laughing and teach you an important message.

The story follows Natalie (Emmi McIntosh) who runs away from home and finds a family of rabbits to live with. It turns out that the rabbits can talk and they end up accepting Natalie into their family.

I like how this story is told. Natalie's mom in the beginning has a wonderfully dry sense of humor. Natalie has a bit of an attitude, but she comes around. This story is a musical. It is fun to watch and the songs are delightful; the singers have lovely voices - all appropriate for their animated characters. The animation is 2D; it's simple, sweet, and it brings the story to life. The main human character is Natalie (Emmi McIntosh) and, in the bunny family, there is Dad Bradley (Jon Holewinski), Mom Beth (Fiona Torrese), Brody (Nolan Bunting), Blake (David Greene) and Bella (Darwin Shire). My favorite part is when Brody, who was not very inclusive, finally becomes inclusive at the end says, "And put me down," which I liked because I have bunnies and know that they don't like being picked up.

The message is about being inclusive, especially with people who are different than we are.

I give this one 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 3 to 12, because it has a good message and also teaches use about the animal kingdom. Reviewed by Avalon N., KIDS FIRST!

After a disagreement with her mom, 8-year-old Natalie runs away -- all the way to her backyard, where she meets a family of rabbits and decides to move in with them. Songs are sung and friends are made in this sweet, funny short film about building trust, overcoming fear, and connecting across difference to make room for everyone.
