A fantastic journey sometimes begins with one tiny little hop. Ribbit is a frog with an identity crisis. Unlike frogs, he hates hopping and has a strong aversion to water. Feeling a misfit, he is full of questions about his life… and so together with his best friend, a flying squirrel, he embarks on a soul-searching journey for the truth and his rightful place in this world. Set amid the breathtaking backdrop of the Amazon rain forest, they surge ahead in their quest for the answer to life’s mysteries… encountering a zany variety of colorful characters, both friend and foe, along the way.

Dove Review

Ribbit and Sandy make a strange couple—one a poisonous frog and the other a flying squirrel—traveling together. These two go on an adventure to find answers to many questions, but for Ribbit it is mostly the answer to why he is what he is. Along the way they meet some odd creatures, including one who tells the frog that he is really a human cursed by a witch and that he needs to kiss a princess to return to his original form. Their journey opens their eyes to truths about others and also themselves that they never imagined.

Today’s animation is always amazing as it brings creatures to life in a more life-like way than cartoons of the past. Some animated tales, like this story, also bring attention to valuable lessons for everyone. Examples from “Ribbit” include that it is okay to be just who you are, and that sometimes it is important to help others even if doing so may be scary.

We proudly award this film with the Dove Family “Approved Seal” for all ages.
