Review: ‘Mean Teddies’ (2016)
At 2 minutes, 22 seconds, there’s no reason not to watch this. Every good childhood is replete with a safe twin bed, a cozy blanket, pillow, and a child’s very own Teddy Bear. This animated short film explores the crucial relationship the Teddy Bear serves to its owner. Much like it’s namesake, the Teddy is a ferocious protector and hunter. How and why is explored very beautifully, succinctly, here in this, assumingly, Studio Ghibli-inspired few minutes.
As a side note, I’m planning to follow the creator/director Tyler Novo. I expect more good things from this young man.
