Rubén Iñiguez Pérez review: Spain is one of the leading countries in animation, and that is shown in this work, that was nominated to the Oscar awards in 2010. Its perfect production and the hilarious it is, influenced by Tex Avery, William Hannah or Joseph Barbera, made the short movie work perfectly.
