The story follows Maggie Simpson as she returns to the Ayn Rand School for Tots, where even though she’s deemed “nothing special”, she does find something special in the form of a blooming caterpillar.

Being about the biggest Simpsons fan I had to say this pretty far from the Simpsons in their prime and felt like a less impressive retread of something Maggie's done before( see; "A Streetcar Named Marge") however what it does achieve the Simpsons middle ground between being really endearing even heartfelt and still taking plenty of risks and packs in plenty of jokes for being 5 mins. Worth seeing.
Maggie Simpson goes to Ayn Rand daycare, where after being sorted in with the average kids, sets out to save a caterpillar from a kid with a penchant for hammering butterflies with a mallet. At only 4 minutes longe, it's a cute little trifle, cramming a lot of satirical jabs into its short running time. A 2012 Oscar nominee for Best Animated Short Film.
