Since Happy Feet stomped its way to an Academy Award in 2006, several animated films have followed in its footsteps -- both of them. That might be one of the reasons that Happy Feet fails to resonate with some; instead of the off-kilter charm that, say, the clown fish Marlin from Finding Nemo or Sid the Sloth from Ice Age give off, Happy Feet's animation inches so close to realism that it sucks away some of those chances at caricaturist pairings between vocal talent and visual identification. His hero's journey involves both discovering his own innate coolness, and, more importantly, solving the mystery of the dwindling supply of edible fish in the ocean.

The animation is invested heavily in motion capture technology, with the dance scenes acted out by human dancers.

After being continuously ridiculed and rejected by peers and his own father (Jackman), Mumble departs on a journey to learn what is causing the local fish population to decline--and to find himself along the way. For " Cars," the message was to stop and smell the roses - enjoy life for the journey, not the destination.The animation in Happy Feet invested heavily in motion capture technology, with the dance scenes acted out by human dancers. Happy Feet" may suffer from a few flaws, not the least of which its (at times) plodding pace and its neat and tidy happy ending. At the forbidden shore, Mumble, Lovelace and the Amigos are attacked by the two orcas, during which Lovelace gets free from the plastic rings. In 'Happy Feet 2' (2011) Mumble is dismayed to discover that his son Erik (Elizabeth Daily) cannot, or will not, dance.
