A group of desert terrorists kidnap civilians. A team of rabbit commandos, Packy and Botasky, from the Carrot Military Service, a private military company, witness a murder of an escaping hostage. Afraid that the rest of the hostages will undergo the same situation, the team demands backup. However, the backup arrival time will be too late for the hostages. ‘Their lives are in our hands!’ Without any other options, the rabbit commandos charge for the enemy line on their own.

    I can only echo the critics who have praised this.

    It’s great, but it’s already on my hard drive – in HD – in my YOUTUBE downloads folder, dated several months ago. Was that not legitimate?

    It’s nice to see they put the dub on Youtube, since that hasn’t been floating around the internet for that long.

    As much as I like this I can’t ever see myself buying it, at least without a significant markdown. $20-30 for one 20 minute short is just too much.
