The Tadpool

Have you ever wondered what exactly goes on in the pond at the end of the garden? Thanks to the folks over at France based La Station Animation we have an answer.

This pilot for what will hopefully become a kids’ TV series is known in French as La Mare aux Têtards which translates as The Sea of Tadpoles. However, someone has rather cleverly come up with the name The Tadpool instead.

The creatures in the pond are equally cleverly done with only the broadest nod towards realism. Having said that, you can pretty much tell what is supposed to be what! This short tale recounts what happens when one of the denizens of the pond decided they want to spend a little time above the surface.
