Koala Kid - DVD Review

I received DVD for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

DVD Synopsis:

Journey down under and meet a whole new breed of hero in this laugh-filled, action-packed animated adventure with an all-star voice cast, including Rob Schneider, Tim Curry and Alan Cumming. Johnny (Schneider) is a rare white koala bear who just wants to fit in and make friends. But when a twist of fate mistakenly transforms him into a fearless protector of animals, called “Koala Kid,” Johnny finds himself in over his head on a thrilling trek across the outback. With help from his hilarious new sidekicks, including a crafty Tasmanian devil, a lovable lizard and a boomerang-flinging female koala, Johnny may just outwit a villainous crocodile named Bog (Cumming) and become a true hero after all.

My Review:

Johnny, a white koala, wants to fit in but has trouble doing so because all the other koalas are grey.  To prove himself, Johnny becomes a star at a carnival then heads up for adventure in the outback.

The animation is brilliant and most of the characters are likable.  There are some scenes that may be unnerving to younger viewers, especially the ones involving Bog the crocodile, but the adventure and humor rounds out the movie to make it an entertaining watch.  Koala Kid proves that anyone can be a hero.
