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.
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.
