Molly the Cat's ABC Wednesday Movie for the Letter O


I love a movie with penguins. Who wouldn't, I ask you? Who? Maybe owls.

This movie stars a dog. Rrrrfh. I like dogs. My first friends and protectors were dogs. I love dogs. Rrrfh. Sometimes Missus Lady and Hero Man remark how much like a dog I am. My Humans so know me. Rrrrfh.

Oddball and the Penguins (2015)
Setting: Middle Island off the coast of Warrnambool, Australia

Fairy penguins do indeed have a breeding colony on Middle Island off the southwestern coast of Australia. And, Oddball was an actual maremma sheepdog who saved the colony of fairy penguins from dying off on Middle Island in 2006.

So, purrrrrrr, this movie is inspired by a true heart-warming tale. Why were the fairy penguins dying off? How did the farmer who owned Oddball knew he could protect the penguins? Also, who among the townspeople didn't want the little penguins to flourish, and why didn't they?

I love this movie. Rrrrfh! Purrrrrrrrrrr.

  3. If it's got animals in it it's my kind of movie, especially if it's based on a true story :)

  9. Excellent choice, Molly :D ... I thoroughly enjoyed this story when it came out, and I'm not one for animal films - hurts my heart too much even if there's a happy ending.
