Be it ever so humble, there’s no place like home – and Hedgehog’s den in a tree is his castle. Proud and strong, Hedgehog commands the respect of the other animals in the forest – but some of them are jealous as well. After a lovely dinner with Fox, a quartet of insatiable woodland beasts ambush Hedgehog and mock his charming abode – but their come-uppance is inevitable. Black humour, a Western movie motif and beautifully detailed felt animation make ‘Hedgehog’s Home’ a joy.
