One of the most beautiful animated short films ever!
This one is more appropriately titled, "The Frogs That Wanted a King." Probably one of the more spectacular animated shorts I've seen, as a land full of frogs look to find unity and peace in their environment by asking God (looks like Zeus in this one)for a king. God gives them something alright, but in turn, the reproachful frogs criticize God for what he sent down. God rises in anger and reacts by bestowing the land of frogs with a king that proves to be more of a supernatural Hitler than anything else! Great fun, this political allegory hits it right on the mark. Ladislaw is incredible, and you don't have to buy all his shorts in separate installments. There is one DVD that will do the trick.
