Pandy Show

Pjandić šou

The wildest bunch of animals helping out world’s greatest tree planters - the endangered orangutans.

In a small DIY TV studio, panda Pandy and raccoon Robbie greet the audience of the Pandy Show. The wildest show on the planet begins! Today's guest is Bumi, a young Bornean Orangutan. He is the tree planting champion of his forest. Pandy is amazed by his title and wants to know more about it. Bumi reveals that he plants trees by pooping seeds of the fruits he eats. He confesses that he hasn't pooped for days now because all the orangutans from his forest went on poop strike. TV reporter, chicken Henrietta reports live from Borneo with her cinematographer, octopus Octavia. They interview orangutans about their everyday life. Orangutans explain that they went on poop strike because giant machines are destroying everything they plant. Back in the studio, Robbie gets an idea to make seed bombs - they will use them to plant even more trees and help orangutans save their home! Pandy, Robbie and Bumi go to Borneo. The poop strike is over! Orangutans are finally revealed.

Director’s statement
All animals are too awesome to go extinct! That’s the main idea behind this short. If endangered animals could host their own show, what would they say? The inspiration comes from talk shows and podcasts – both being the “me telling you my own story” formats. Although we speak about climate change, an important topic that affects every living being on our planet, we don’t want to scare kids and make them sad. That’s why Pandy Show has been imagined as fun and playful. Kids will see how funny and smart orangutans are. They will also find out how important they are for making their island green.
