Cartoons@The Model saw another great success for The Big Bad Mouse on April Fool’s Day, with parents and children utterly captivated by the antics of the Big Bad mouse and the little gruffalo! A sequel to the much loved tale by Julia Donaldson and Axel Sheffler, this spectacular animation is endearing, tender and very comical.
Narrated by Helen Bonham Carter as the mother squirrel, with a star performance by Robbie Coltrane as the Gruffalo, the atmosphere in The Model cinema was electric as the mouse outwitted the little gruffalo with great aplumb.
Survival and adventure are all at the centre of this tale. Face-painting and a creative corner for children to draw and paint were all part of the package. A “one minute” mischievous short, especially animated by Model intern Katie O’Kane and inspired by The Gruffalo stories was also screened on the day.
The next Model’s children’s matinee is the much loved animation Ratatouille screening on Sunday, May 20th at 12.30pm in connection with SÓ Sligo Food Festival. See you all then.
