This adaptation of George Orwell's classic political allegory was Britain's first full-length British cartoon and emerges as a surprisingly faithful treatment of the tale of barnyard revolution. Paralleling the Russian Revolution, the story tells of a group of animals' attempts to oust human beings and operate on their own. The animation isn't as glossy as its American counterparts, but it possesses its own cheery quirkiness.
