The lovably simple residents of peaceful Kikoriki Island are thrown kicking and screaming into big adventure when their resident scientist invents an amazing device (a helmet called "the Improverizor") which takes personality traits from one person and swaps them with someone elses!
But when spineless young Wally tries to use the untested device to cure his cowardice, he ends up even more spineless: by getting accidentally body-switched with a squirmy little caterpillar. Now hes got more to fear than he ever dreamed, and so do his fellow villagers, as theyre dragged into a madcap adventure packed with plane crashes, mistaken identities, erupting volcanoes and angry natives on the warpath. Boy, do the Kikoriki rew wish they could switch places now: with anyone!

The story begins with the local scientist creating a machine called the “Improverizer” which swaps people’s personalities. But something goes terribly wrong when a young coward, Wally, gets ahold of the device. Wally’s friends and other Kikoriki residents go on a journey to help him return to his original body. It is a tale of finding yourself, learning to trust your own instincts and not rely on silly mechanisms like an “Improverizer” in order to change and grown and friendship.
The animation is done with CG (Computer Generation) and is colorful and esthetically pleasing. Each of the characters are based off of animals and their personalities are very fitting. Their bodies are egg-shaped and the DVD actually includes an egg decorating kit so you can make your own Kikoriki villagers at home. The animation is cartoony and fun, but some times I did feel it was a bit slow. As an illustrator myself, I found the landscaping and various imaginative backdrops were my favorite part of Kikoriki.
My favorite character is Wally. Wally started off as a coward and tried to use the “Improverizer” to change his personality. But in the end he learned that bravery comes from within. I found myself laughing several times during the film.
I feel Kikoriki: Legend of the Golden Dragon is appropriately rated PG for rude humor and mild peril. It also includes a few adult references and jokes, but nothing so noticeable I feel a younger child would pick up on.
I recommend this film for ages 6-12. I give this film 3 out of 5 stars.
