The lovably simple residents of peaceful Kikoriki Island are thrown kicking and screaming into big adventure when their resident scientist invents an amazing device – a helmet called “the Improverizor” – which takes personality traits from one person and swaps them with someone else’s!
But when spineless young Wally tries to use the untested device to cure his cowardice, he ends up even more spineless – by getting accidentally body-switched with a squirmy little caterpillar. Now he’s got more to fear than he ever dreamed, and so do his fellow villagers, as they’re dragged into a madcap adventure packed with plane crashes, mistaken identities, erupting volcanoes and angry natives on the warpath. Boy, do the Kikoriki Сrew wish they could switch places now – with anyone!

My Opinion Only:
Dove.org labels Kikoriki as family approved for all ages. This full-length animated feature is a spin off on a Russian TV series. Although some younger children may find this movie confusing even scary, most kids will find its story of Wally the ram morphed into Caterpillar Wally fun.
Kikoriki’s little animals are delightful. Putting positive role models like apig, ram, bunny, crow, and owl comic characters against bright backgrounds in cartoon action is eye-popping. Today’s youth needs to believe “There’s a little improverizer inside of all of us.”
