A giant panda named Pancada works at a boxing club. He has dreams of one day becoming a professional dancer, and is in love with a waitress named Beth. His boss, a polar bear named Polaris, is scheduled to fight a large bear named Freak Teddy. Pancada visits his dancing instructor, Master Xin, who teaches him about loyalty. The following day, Polaris has found a black costume, and tells Pancada to wash it for him. The costume shrinks in the wash, resulting in Polaris having the appearance of a panda bear. As Polaris begins the fight with Freak Teddy, Pancada goes to a dance competition, wherein he ends up winning. Polaris wins the match against Freak Teddy, and because of his panda-like appearance, the club's patrons mistakenly congratulate Pancada for being a powerful fighter. Pancada, having won the dance competition, erroneously believes that he is being congratulated for his dancing skills. Before Polaris leaves for a vacation, Pancada himself enters the ring to fight Freak Teddy ...

Did You Know?


This movie has confused so many people for the real Kung Fu Panda, that the Amazon UK page for the DVD says "NOT KUNG FU PANDA" next to the movie's title. See more »


In a scene in which Pancada is meditating with Master Xin, he informs him that he will be competing in a boxing match against Freak Teddy, Xin gives this advice to Pancada, "If you fight like you dance, you can never go wrong". The problem with his advice is that earlier in the film when Pancada auditioned in front of a group of judges in an attempt to persuade them to induct him into their dance academy, he failed to impress them enough and so they turned him down. Xin's advice is incredibly poor, fundamentally incorrect and it just doesn't make any sense. See more »


Grizzlepuss: [Regarding a newspaper's front-page story about a masked boxer, who's identity is unknown, and who is challenging Freak Teddy to a fight] Lucky he's wearing a mask. That way no one will know who he is when he inevitably bites the s-stuh.

Apparently, some Brazilians hate mankind...and this 'film' is proof!
19 June 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Video Brinquedo in Brazil is responsible for bringing us "Urshinho da Pesada" ("The Little Panda Fighter") and it only makes me wonder if these folks truly hate children. After all, I cannot imagine any child enjoying this cheap mess of a film...and it will be even tougher for parents to suffer through this monstrosity. Avoid it like the plague!!

Like their other film, "Ratatoing", this movie is a deliberate attempt to piggyback on the success of a GOOD Hollywood blockbuster, "Kung Fu Panda". This sort of thing isn't unheard of....there are several companies that regularly come out with ultra-cheap films with titles and plots similar to the blockbusters and which hope to fool viewers into watching the ersatz versions. But the sheer awfulness and cheapness of this Brazilian film is hard to imagine...you really have to see this for yourself to see how badly it's made. For instance, while "Kung Fu Panda" and "Ratatouille" are gorgeously animated, this CGI film truly looks as if it was made many years earlier....and isn't even close to being as nice looking as "Toy Story" from 1995!! It seems like an experiment made back in the 1980s...or perhaps a project created by a semi-talented 7 year-old! While animation alone might not ruin the film, horrible dialog, a dull story and nothing which would interest any child guarantee it will be listed among the worst children's movies of all time. Yes, folks....it's THAT bad! If given a choice of watching this movie again or eating my own foot, I'd say "Pass the ketchup"!
