Synopsis by Matthew Tobey
This offbeat animated short from Korean director Oh-Sung Kwon tells the story of a talking piece of canine excrement. Doggy Poo becomes forlorn when no one wants to be his friend on account of him being a mass of smelly waste. Luckily, things take a positive turn for the lonely protagonist when he encounters a dandelion sprout and an unlikely friendship blossoms between the two. Based on a 1968 children's book by Jung-Saeng Kwon, Doggy Poo was awarded the prize for Best Pilot at the 2003 Tokyo International Anime Fair and won the Viewer's Choice award at the 2003 Big Apple Anime Fest.
