Yes, I said teddy bear adventure. Before you run screaming like a banshee from the confines of this article, you should probably investigate the trailers for Czech director Jan Sveraka’s adorable animated adventure “Kuky Returns” (aka “Kooky”). The film chronicles the exploits of an unwanted stuffed animal named Kuky, who embarks on an amazing journey after being reluctantly discarded by his owner. It is, essentially, a retelling of the story “The Velveteen Rabbit” with stop-motion animation. Although it sounds remarkably hokey and a little childish, the film looks outstanding. In order to help you see things from my perspective, the aforementioned clips are ready for your unwavering, undivided attention.
Huge thanks to Geek Tyrant for pointing me in the right direction. I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to discover it.
