DreamWorks Animation-Forgotten/Minor Characters #16: The Original Noodle Shop Owner

Kung Fu Panda was an instant success when it was released, both critically and financially. Its success led to it becoming a franchise spawning two sequels, a few shorts, and a couple of television series. It has always been one of my favorite DreamWorks Animation films and I’m glad to have gotten to it on this Forgotten/Minor Characters journey in time for its 10th anniversary!

The 2007 DreamWorks Animation film, Bee Movie, is one that is often derided, mocked, and made memes out of. Be it the fact that people find the plot of a bee lawsuit against humkind outrageous or the fact that Jerry Seinfeld voices a bee, many people don’t like this film all too much. I, on the other hand, have always enjoyed the film and still do. Yes, it’s nothing spectacular, but it definitely isn’t god-awful and it has some interesting themes in it, such as discussing cultural appropriation before cultural appropriation was even a thing!

We now arrive at the 2006 DreamWorks Animation film, Over the Hedge. Based on the comic strip of the same name, this film is about a raccoon named RJ, voiced by Bruce Willis, who tricks a bunch of forest animals led by the “reptile”, Verne, voiced by the late Garry Shandling, into stealing food to pay bay an angry bear, Vincent, voiced by Nick Nolte.

We soon arrive at our 2nd Aardman Animations film that they co-produced with DreamWorks Animation: Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit. Based on the popular Aardman Animations shorts, Wallace and Gromit, this 2005 film was the first (and ’til date, only) feature-length film featuring the cheese-loving inventor and his silent canine companion.

In 2005, DreamWorks Animation released the first film of what would be their next big franchise, Madagascar. I’ve made it clear before that I’m not a fan of these films (with the exception of the third one) and after re-watching this one, my opinion is still the same.
