"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."

"The animation itself is gorgeous and unique... The jokes range from slapstick to macabre, satisfying both the child and cynic in everyone, and the film itself succeeds, both as a comedy piece and a heartwarming story about acceptance and identity."
