The Pebble and the Penguin is an animated film, produced and directed by Don Bluth and Gary Goldman. It was originally released in movie theatres in the USA in 1995 by MGM and was released internationally by Warner Bros. in 1996.

PlotEdit

Template:Spoiler The film follows Hubie, a shy young penguin desperate to impress a female during their mating-season, wherein the males present stones to the females as gifts. He must present his special pebble to her before the pebble festival is over, or lose his chance forever. Hubie just manages to pluck up the nerve when his callous rival Drake knocks him off the ice, and he is swept away. Picked up and caged by a ship, he meets the streetwise Rocco, whose only wishes are to live in sunny climates and learn to fly. Together they escape, and Hubie convinces Rocco to help him find Antarctica. When they arrive, Hubie must defeat his worst enemy to win over the beautiful Marina, and Rocco must face up to the reality of his dream of flying.

ReceptionEdit

The film did not do well at the box office. It only grossed $3,939,728 dollars and received low critical reviews.
