George The Hedgehog

Poland: George the Hedgehog

  1. Overview
  2. Description

Trash, crude and funny: these are the adventures of George, the hedonistic hedgehog.

As the little Polish cousin of Fritz the cat and Seth MacFarlane's Teddy bear, George the hedgehog is a strong drinker as well as a serial shagger living a simple life among humans who are not at all concerned about his state. This cap-sporting skateboarder and enemy of skinheads gets himself caught up in a dark conspiracy orchestrated by an evil scientist.

The film's trash and minimalist animation style helps to carry this funny and crude story to present an unknown side of Polish animation. Adapted from a Tomasz Le?niak underground comic, George the Hedgehog (Je? Jerzy) has achieved great success in Poland.
