The first episode of the Cat Shit One animated series is out, and blog reader Adam S was awesome enough to send it over for me to check out.

Here are my thoughts on it:

  • The animation and physics are incredible… It’s basically like a grownups version of Toy Story, but with animals and guns.
  • The camera angles in the animation are really neat as well, and really add to the viewing experience.
  • Sound effects and music are top notch.
  • One discrepancy I did note, is that the rabbit’s hearing protection is always at the side of their face, not where their ears are… not a big deal though.

The main rabbit character “Packy” has what looks like an m4, but it takes AK mags… a lot of people think that was a mistake, but it’s not. The rifle exists and is made by Knights Armament Company, model: KAC SR-47

Not that much happens in this 20 minute first episode, but I’m sure the story will develop more in the remaining episodes.

Also known in Japan as “Cat Shit One”, this animated series is scheduled for release in early 2010 … It looks pretty awesome

The series follows three American soldiers (Rabbits) in the Vietnam War named Bota, Perky and Rats. All three are in the recon team called Cat Shit One. Each mission shows the daily activities of the reconnaissance group in Vietnam

The American Rabbits in this are a wordplay on the Japanese word “Usagi”, which also means Rabbit. Another way to look at it is the word as an acronym – U.S.A. G.I.

Pretty neat!

Other animals in this series according to their nationality are:

  • American – Rabbit
  • Vietnamese – Cat
  • French – Pig
  • Chinese – Panda
  • Japanese – Monkey and Gorilla
  • Russian – Bear
  • Korean – Dog
  • British – Rat

  • German – Fox
  • Middle Eastern – Camel, Goat and Sheep
  • Argentines – Cow
