The Little Panda Fighter
The Little Panda Fighter (Ursinho da Pesada in Portuguese) it's a computer animated movie made in 2008 by Vídeo Brinquedo.
A giant panda named Pancada works at a boxing club. He has dreams of one day becoming a professional dancer, and is in love with a waitress named Beth. His boss, a polar bear named Polaris, is scheduled to fight a large bear named Freak Teddy. Pancada visits his dancing instructor, Master Xin, who teaches him about loyalty. The following day, Polaris has found a black costume, and tells Pancada to wash it for him. The costume shrinks in the wash, resulting in Polaris having the appearance of a panda bear. As Polaris begins the fight with Freak Teddy, Pancada goes to a dance competition, wherein he ends up winning.
Polaris wins the match against Freak Teddy, and because of his panda-like appearance, the club's patrons mistakenly congratulate Pancada for being a powerful fighter. Pancada, having won the dance competition, erroneously believes that he is being congratulated for his dancing skills. After some words of wisdom from Master Xin, Pancada himself enters the ring to fight Freak Teddy and loses. After the fight, Polaris informs Pancada that he had made a bet that Pancada would lose the fight, and therefore, he becomes wealthy. After Polaris retires to the icy mountains, Pancada transforms the boxing club into a dance club.

- The movie has confused so many people for the real Kung Fu Panda, that the Amazon UK page for the DVD says "NOT KUNG FU PANDA" next to the movie's title.
- "The Little Panda Fighter" it's a misleading title for the following reasons:
- The panda (Pancada) it's not little, he is a fully grown panda.
- He is not a fighter either, in the movie he wants to be a dancer, and he only fights for the last 5 minutes of the movie, and he loses.
