Indigen - Episode 279 is a computer generated short animated movie made within the framework of specialization in computer graphics with Supinfocom.


In a savannah where traces of wars still exist, Koundou, a young African hunter, protects his meal from an opponent as stupid as resistant...

Bad Qualities

  1. Ugly and noticeably poor-quality CGI animation that causes the characters' movements to look stilted and the CGI animation as a whole look straight-up unfinished.
  2. The squirrel is a rip-off of Scrat from Ice Age. As not only do they look similar in appearance, but they're both gibberish-talking squirrels that fill the role of the secondary character. But while Scrat is funny comic relief, this squirrel is an obnoxious knock-off of the Blue Sky mascot.
  3. The short in particular is like a Tom and Jerry short, but Koundou and the squirrel are different and adding them killed by a bunch of stuff.
  4. The short contains a lot of violence, such as blood and inapropriate moments, like Koundou's head getting cut in half.
  5. There is a (albeit short, as it's only present for no more than a second, but it's still absolutely impossible to unsee) disgusting scene where Koundou riding with a rocket flies into inside an elephant's anus and photos of a real-life elephant's anus are shown. We are NOT joking.
  6. Terrible ending: Koundou and the squirrel get blew up by a bomb, when it was ready to blow stuff such as a tank and a jeep came flying from the sky, at the end Koundou slaps the eye from the squirrel and they both laugh.

Good Qualities

  1. It's only 5 minutes, so at least it isn't stretched to the length of a general cartoon episode.
  2. It has a rather decent soundtrack for the most part, with the songs "Swamp Rat" and "Watermelon Man" by American jazz pianist and composer Herbie Hancock, and "Main Offender" by Swedish rock band The Hives heard in the short.


This short got a 6.4/10 rating on IMDb.


  • The short was seen in some unofficial bootleg Ice Age DVDs.
