FernGully, a rainforest in Australia, is rich with the life of fairies, trees, insects and animals; humans, meanwhile, are thought to be extinct. One day, Crysta, a fairy, meets a real human, Zak, who works for a logging company. After accidentally shrinking him to save him from a falling tree, Crysta learns about the toxic force called Hexxus that is polluting and killing the trees in her land. The inhabitants of FernGully band together, with help from Zak, to save their home from the destruction.


WALL-E lives in a world that exists because of thoughtless consumerism and environmental exploitation. He is a garbage collecting robot that was created to clean up the waste that was left behind from a powerful, multi-national corporation, Buy N Large. Determined to live a meaningful life, he fights to bring love and life back to Earth.
