Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

A little dog leaves the title character by the side of a road, wondering why its exists. Over the course of several months, Poo meets a leaf, a hen, and a lump of soil, who assures it, "God has not created you for no reason." But little Poo feels rejected until a dandelion sprout accepts it as fertilizer. The message that even the humblest have a place in creation is a worthy one, but Doggy Poo is a long way from Dr. Seuss's "A person's a person, no matter how small." The stop-motion Poo character whines constantly, and the story unfolds at a leaden pace. Parents who find Doggy Poo acceptable viewing for young children--clearly the intended audience--may have to steer their kids away from the genuine article. (Rated: G, all ages; parents may find images of excrement inappropriate for children's entertainment) --Charles Solomon

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...

5.0 out of 5 stars a tender and moving story August 29, 2005
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.

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 2, 2005
By Kahmren
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars We All Have Our Purpose February 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.

I remember a time when I found a piece of dog poop on the road who was also on a quest to discover his purpose, only this one was older, dried up, and had a beard. After a blade of grass shared a brief friendship with him, he was ruthlessly torn from any possible aspirations by an unsuspecting passerby, the meaning of his existence then reduced to nothing but a nuisance wedged in the tread of a shoe. As meloncholy as I was about the whole incident, my life was changed forever by the touching music that kept floating in from nowhere as his eyes continued to mysteriously produce tears of sadness in the moments of stillness and reflection.

It wasn't until this Doggy Poo story that I found solace in my loss.

(Gotta hand it to the Koreans. Anything that begins with an immobile baby dog poop clump being offended at a bird pecking it's forehead is immediately worth a five-star rating.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Dreams Really Do Come True November 15, 2008
Format:DVD
"Once upon a time, a little doggy poo lived on the side of a road. He felt all alone in the world. He believed that nobody needed him for anything, and that he had no purpose in life. If only Doggy Poo had a reason for being, then he wouldn't give up on his dream to be useful to the world."

Sometimes I feel useless. What good can I do? What is my purpose? People like soup kitchen volunteers, philanthropists, and Dane Cook are feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, and making people NOT laugh. And here I am, 27 years old, a drain on society; my career earnings don't even match my college and grad school debt. Life couldn't seem any more meaningless if I bought new shoes, only to walk out of the store and step in doggy poo. But thanks to Korean stop motion animation, I learned that everything has a purpose; we are all precious and special, even Doggy Poo.

Young little Doggy Poo sits sullenly on a dirt road in the Korean countryside, forlorn since he can't figure out his purpose in life. His friend Soil helps potatoes grow, and his friend Leaf can blow through the wind, but Doggy Poo's life seems so meaningless, he isn't even worthy of being supper for Mother Hen and her baby chicks (they think he smells and tastes bad).

When Flower (don't call her a dandelion weed) sprouts, will Doggy Poo finally find his purpose (fertilizer?) and cry tears of joy? You'll have to watch and find out. But I could not stifle my own tears seeing this delightful stop-motion animation Korean folktale. The sunlight of my life is a little bit brighter, the ice cream sundae of my life has added some colorful sprinkles and tasty hot fudge, and the ice skating competition of my life has landed a triple-lutz, thanks to the inspiring story of young Doggy Poo.
