SHORT FEATURE: THE ADVENTURES OF JUNIOR RAINDROP



"Just what I feared, he's formed a gang!" Is this short a lesson in environmentalism or a warning about the greater danger of delinquency in kids from single parent households?

Either way, the Catechism tells us that "The dominion granted by the Creator over the mineral, vegetable, and animal resources of the universe cannot be separated from respect for moral obligations, including those toward generations to come." It doesn't specifically mention managing resources in order to avoid the roving gangs of vicious killer raindrops, but I'm sure it's covered in there in principal.

They need to make a 2007 version where global warming is synonymous with contraception, no more junior raindrop. :)

I'm not sure that wouldn't have been more effective without the bad animation. Goodness, his mouth doesn't even move.

Decidedly not made in Japan.

Apparently Junior was designed by the same guy who came up with Woodsy The Owl. I'm afraid if he remade this and shifted the emphasis to global warming it would end up starring that Jimmy Dean biscuit guy in the sun suit.

Or if he followed modern trends and contracted with a Japenese shop to provide the animation, we'd probably get Don Patch from Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo.

Either way it's too frightening to think of.
