Summary

Feature-length animated film (combination of a plasticine puppets with classical cartoon and sheet-stock animation and 3D animation) composed of eight fables arranged attractively within the great "wonderful" show - similar to the Oscar ceremony. Animals in the audience of a natural amphitheatre look forward to a screening of the best films made up of the individual fables. Since the great show is broadcast live, we observe the work of the television crew with director Badger at the helm. Host Platypus introduces the films in the competition which include: Fox and Crow, Hare and Turtle, Bull and Frog, House Mouse and Field Mouse, Bat and Two Weasels, Wolf in Disguise, Coyote and Mule and Fox and Stork.
