However, I do find reading the wikipedia plot description and using it to make a critique of a piece of cinema weird and sad in equal measure.

Just had this image of a penguin documentary, the little chick struggling to get enough freshly puked oily fish, wondering how it's gonna survive when Koto the aging iguana from episode 1 pops up in cameo to cook up one of famous spicy jungle soups to save the day*

Er, no. You don't get umpteen billion dollars by aiming at 11 yo boys. It's the adults who bring in the money.
