June 6, 2017: Denver, Colorado, USA:

Adapted from "The Panchatantra”, the classic book of fables of India, The Sage & the Mouse (English) depicts the story of a helpless mouse who was empowered by a good sage. But the power eventually corrupts his character and nearly leads to a disaster in the forest.

Today, The Sage & the Mouse animation was uploaded in the Manick Sorcar Productions Channel of YouTube.

Released in 1993, The Sage & the Mouse is a fully animated 10-minute short film, which has been broadcast in both India and the United States and is the winner of the Gold Medal for music and Silver Medal for animation at the 36th International Film and TV Festival of New York. It was first telecast on the Rocky Mountain PBS Channel, USA in 1993 and thereafter at the same channel continuously for 22 years in a row packaged with Sorcar's other animations, as a year-end or New Year's Day entertainment special.


The Sage & the Mouse is Sorcar's first fully animated production using both traditionally hand-drawn and computer-animated techniques. He brings to it a comical edge for children of all ages to enjoy and cherish along with the typical moralistic values of the fables of The Panchatantra.
