Unstable Fables: Tortoise vs. HareClose
Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this imaginative tale of a rematch between the smug tortoise and perennially disappointed hare of folklore is filled with laughs and well-crafted lessons about the dangers of trying to win at any cost. The characters who have the most to learn are the parents, not the children for a change. Mariachi music accompanies two Mexican competitors whenever they are onscreen, and they speak in Spanish only (with subtitles).
