An animated version of The Poppy Story book. The book follows the development of the Poppy as a symbol of remembrance from the poem In Flanders Fields, and how the Poppy is used to raise money and help those who need it today. It is aimed at children aged four to eight years old. Parents need to know that Short Poppies is a mockumentary-style comedy from New Zealand featuring some crude, offbeat humor. Viewers will also hear the occasional four-letter word, generally said in jest. Some of the characters are kind and respectful people, others are more complicated (such as an older female bigot); all are mocked for their pretensions.
