The Biggest Bear

Quick review.

Review: 

Super long. Odd. Boy adopts a bear cub and raises it and then tries to take it back to the wild but it won't go. He ends up having to try to shoot it but some zookeepers come deus ex machina style at the very end.

Wild animals shouldn't be pets.

Review: 

Surprisingly, slightly racist. Interesting enough to write a longer review. Having princes carry your stuff is some sort of statement.

Zoos are great, but they could be much better. Or, foreigners should live in zoos.

Review: 

Starts out like the ant and the grasshopper, where a family of field mice are all getting ready for winter except one who seems like a slacker but it turns out he is a POET. Kind of a hipster vibe despite its age.

Stay on the rails no matter what. For no reason, except because the people say so. Trains apparently love to play in meadows.
