Pascale Hecquet

France, Belgium, 2020 / 7 min / French OV / Animation

Part of the short film collection La Chouette en toque

After swallowing a fly, a bear gets annoyed by its buzzing in his belly.

A bear is sleeping peacefully in the woods when he accidentally swallows a fly. He can't stand it buzzing around in his belly. A squirrel advises him to swallow a frog... who ends up croaking inside him. The bear then swallows a grass snake whose wriggling tickles him. Next is a heron whose beak prickles him. What lengths will he have to go to to stop this torture?
