Little Gravel Voice

3.4
5.9/10 IMDB

A little burro is beloved by all the cute wild creatures until he opens his mouth and they hear the horrible braying. Dejected, he wanders off on a mountain trail to cry. A wolf spots him and begins stalking, but the braying, even more hideous when mixed with sobs, scares him off. The wolf spots easier prey: the same cute critters that rejected our hero earlier. He corners a baby gopher, and is closing in when the burro, rushing to come to the rescue, arrives and brays him right off a cliff. The grateful onlooking creatures, sorry about earlier having fled from sweet Little Gravel Voice, happily embrace him with affection and friendship.
