The Tender Tale of Cinderella Penguin

The Tender Tale of Cinderella Penguin

| 9 min

The NFB's 45th Oscar®-nominated film.

This short animation is a zany version of the classic fairy tale, with the leading role played by a mistreated, romantic penguin, with hilarious results. Cinderella Penguin loses her magic flipper as she runs to meet her midnight deadline, but all ends well when Prince Charming finds the right webbed foot and the nasty step-family is brought to heel.

    I had read this book many times in my home daycare, not knowing there was also this wonderful animation. I have passed it on to them. :)
