"He overcomes adversity and becomes a wildly popular circus act in this beautifully assembled and entertaining animated short from director Kyle Bell. Flashing back through various points in his life, 'The Mouse That Soared' features delightful visual effects and a beautifully layered production design from Frederick J. Gardner III accompanied by a spirited sound design from David C. Hughes that makes one feel like P.T. Barnum himself is in the room."
