Animated plastic toys like Cowboy, Indian and Horse have problems, too. Cowboy and Indian’s plan to surprise Horse with a homemade birthday gift backfires when they destroy his house instead. Surreal adventures take over as the trio travel to the center of the earth, trek across frozen tundra and discover a parallel underwater universe where pointy-headed (and dishonest!) creatures live. Each speedy character is voiced — and animated — as if their very air contains both amphetamines and laughing gas. With panic a permanent feature of life in this papier mâché town, will Horse and his girlfriend ever be alone? —Cannes Film Festival
Easily one of the best times I've ever had with a stop-motion animation feature film. Short, odd and incredibly smart. The animation was kind of off-putting for the first few minutes, but then it just adds to the laughs. I wish every animation director would put this much energy into their films.
