Over a soundtrack of Cuban music and filled with homemade sound effects, Martha Hamilton and Mitch Weiss enthusiastically voice this tiny saga of the clumsy, indignant Rooster and his desire to go to a party thrown by a Heron. In the style of a children’s story, Rooster’s Night Out has the feel of a Zen parable, complete with a hero’s journey and conversations with grass, a stick, a cow, and a river. Rather than a moral lesson, however, Rooster’s Night Out is a fun tale of opportunism wrought pure.
