Amid the boundless ice-cold ocean, the fortunate survivor, Scrat, finally finds a tiny islet, willing to go to great lengths to get his precious acorns; however, all that glitters is not gold. Will Scrat ever learn?
Because of his undying love for acorns, Scrat makes an astounding discovery that sends him deep into the black and endless space; however, his actions have consequences of cosmic proportions. Will he stay forever stranded in the void?
Sid, the well-meaning and kind primaeval sloth, along with a small group of inquisitive children, go out on a fascinating camping trip, to witness firsthand the infinite wonders of prehistoric nature. With Scrat, the indefatigable acorn-seeker, always trying to find the perfect nut, the team will soon discover that their adult guide is somewhat lacking the basic skills one needs to master to survive the wilderness--and to make matters worse--there is someone out there stalking them. Who is this mysterious follower? What will happen if Sid's clumsiness triggers a geological chain reaction of epic proportions?Written by
"Sid the Sloth," a hilarious co-star in the Ice Age animated feature films, stars in this short.....and doesn't disappoint. This is one funny sloth, and one humorous and clever cartoon. We get a "cameo" from "Scat," too, which is always a good thing. Also, the artwork is spectacular, at least on Blu-Ray. This really looks fantastic.
Sid's a camp counselor here and - you guessed it - a pretty inept one. The kids are wise-guys but Sid has a few zingers, too, giving one kid "a merit badge for whining." John Leguizamo does his normal superb job of voicing "Sid." He has a couple of his children doing voice-work in here, too, according to the ending credits.
In the end, we find out how Sid was instrumental in forming the Grand Canyon. I kid you not.
I saw this as a bonus feature on the "Horton Hears A Who" Blu-Ray DVD. If you have the DVD, don't miss this feature; you'll really laugh.
