| Good work; lovely irony
In what is surely the best of the six animation shorts about Quark, the troll-like creature from "Valhalla", the animators and writers do well to unite their crafts to tell Quark's story of origin while inspiring plenty of laughs. The animation is not very advanced, but its liveliness and its many fun troll characters make up for a great deal.

A narrator is used here to a much higher degree than in any of the following five films; he tells the entire story assisted only by various sound effects and some lively music. The narration, carried out excellently by Henrik Kofoed in the Danish version, is used for a very specific purpose, namely to tell an ironic tale where pictures are contrasts to the narration. It is this concept that brings me to rate this film highly among not only the six Quarks, but among animation shorts in general.
