Oscar is the nickname given by the narrator (Tim Allen) to a young chimpanzee in his toddler years. He is part of a close-knit tribe of chimpanzees. They occupy a forest territory which is rich in native fruits, nuts, and figs, among other things. The chimps hunt small tree monkeys, and they also eat termites collected with primitive tools made from sticks. They also use rocks as tools to crack nuts. Oscar is tended by his mother, nicknamed Isha, and from her he begins learning many things about how to survive in the jungle. In the chaos of an attempted raid by a rival gang of chimpanzees led by 'Scar', Isha is injured and separated from the group and her son. As told by the narrator, Isha is most probably the victim of a nocturnal leopard.

As the bears leave the oncoming summer brings with it a threat of avalanches. Fortunately the bears are able to avoid disaster.

The family works together to survive the spring, with Sky keeping the cubs safe from Tikaani, a pesky gray wolf. The cubs get to know how to defend themselves in encounters with Tikaani.

L'océan recouvre plus de 70 % de la Terre et lui donne sa couleur et son surnom : la planète bleue. Nous découvrons ces merveilleux fonds sous-marins accompagnés d'un jeune dauphin surnommé Blue qui nous guide au cœur du monde aquatique et nous fait découvrir des créatures étranges, merveilleuses, fantastiques évoluant dans un équilibre fragile. L'espèce du dauphin est fortement mis en avant en montrant notamment le lien fort qui existe entre une mère et son petit. La baleine à bosse ainsi que les différentes barrières de corail sont également des éléments essentiels du film.

Bien que les mers recouvrent plus des deux tiers de notre planète, nous connaissons mieux la surface de la lune que les fonds des océans. La Planète bleue est un étonnant voyage d'une infinie richesse dans le monde marin. Des espèces inconnues vivant à des profondeurs jamais atteintes par l'homme, en passant par la naissance des crabes, la lutte des bancs de sardines contre les prédateurs de la mer et des airs, les réunions incongrues des manchots, les jeux cruels des orques, sans oublier les ballets des dauphins ou les balades majestueuses des baleines en voie d'extinction, ce film tout public nous invite à un voyage qui rapproche le spectateur de tout âge de la nature.

Megamind is a super intelligent alien who was evacuated from his homeworld as a baby, as was Metro Man; the two fall into paths of super villainy and superheroism respectively and grow up as rivals fighting for control of Metro City. Megamind is consistently defeated by Metroman and is in prison. After using a holographic watch to escape with the aid of Minion, a talking fish with the robotic body of a gorilla, he kidnaps Metro Man's supposed love interest, reporter Roxanne Ritchi and holds her hostage to lure him into a trap. Finding that copper is Metro Man's one weakness, Megamind's plan to obliterate him with a death ray powered by the sun succeeds, and Megamind finally takes over the city. His joy is short lived though, as without a hero to fight, he finds his life has become meaningless. He goes to the Metroman Museum, which was dedicated to him on the day of his death and nearly runs into Roxanne. He uses his holographic watch to disguise himself as the museum's curator Bernard, and she innocently gives him the idea of creating a new superhero to take Metro Man's place. After creating a formula from Metroman's DNA, Roxanne intervenes in his plans and he accidentally injects the serum into Hal Stewart, Roxanne's dimwitted cameraman, who has an unrequited crush on her. Under the guise of his "Space Dad", Megamind tries to mold Hal into a superhero named Titan (misheard by Hal as "Tighten"), as it was the only name he could trademark. Unfortunately, Hal's ambitions are crushed when he sees Roxanne and Megamind as Bernard on a date. However, Megamind's disguise falters during dinner and she rejects him, causing him to lose track of his invisible car which contains the gun capable of removing Hal's powers.
