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

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...

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.

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.

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.)

I just happened to catch this movie by chance and was pleasantly surprised with the message being portrayed by a little piece of poo. It's not gross or bawdy humor. I would recommend this for children who will enjoy watching the cute little poo try to figure out where he belongs and will learn that no matter who or what you are, you have a purpose.

Some of the meaning may not be understood unless you are familiar with Korean culture. A Korean friend explained to me the dandelion is hardy and tough, it also symbolizes the conflicts Koreans have had with... their neighbors in Asia... over the centuries and how they have survived. In Korea, the dandelion is considered to be a flower, not a weed. The dandelion is also used as a symbol of Korea and its people. It's called a kkot, flower, and this mindalae kkot symbolizes loyalty. Plus it's edible--tastes great in kimchi and you can make wine out of it. Doggy Poo and the dandelion create a beautiful flower together in the end. I think the reason it is so popular in Korea is because its meaning is more completely understood.
