A Video Brinquedo classic, totally unabashed about ripping off Kung Fu Panda. It was even released at the same time to try and bamboozle audiences into confusing the two. Sadly, about four seconds into the amateur animation and stilted dialogue will inform any half-awake viewer that neither DreamWorks nor Jack Black went anywhere near this one. The weird slant in The Little Panda Fighter is that the panda actually wants to be a dancer, not a martial artist. But he kind of just gets involved in fighting people anyway. One bit of consolation if you did accidentally pick this up instead of Kung Fu Panda is at least this one’s only 51 minutes long.
