PUDGEON (Family Animation) - A pudgy, young New York City pigeon must learn discipline, confidence and teamwork to rescue the hen-of-his-dreams from an evil hawk.
Synopsis: A pudgy, young New York City pigeon must learn discipline, confidence and teamwork to rescue the hen-of-his-dreams from an evil hawk. Pudgeon is a coming-of-age tale with a modern twist as our hero battles a litany of formidable foes: self-confidence issues, school bullies, a crooked real estate developer, a hungry alley cat, and the hawk mafia.

Pudgeon heads into the school year blissfully unaware of the challenges ahead. Immediately he runs afoul of the school bullies, is informed he is at the age where he must compete in the big race, and is in the sights of an evil hawk.

Featheruss, leader of the bully crew from the rival "rich kids" coop, is expected to win the race because of who he is - the best of everything. His father, Alagash, will spare no expense to make this happen.

Daisy, the prettiest pigeon of them all, must cross coop lines a la "West Side Story" to find the pigeon of her dreams.

The Shadow, the evil hawk, manipulates Featheruss and his father to try and get his prized Central Park address back.

Teeder, Pudgeon's father, needs to carefully draw the line between providing support for his son and letting him grow up and find his own way.

And "The Almond Brothers" are just looking to fit in somewhere, man...

What is a young pigeon to do with all this pressure?
