Adventure, Animated, Comedy, Fantasy
This totally insane stop-motion-animation film comes off as sort of a French Robot Chicken, but without the pop-culture references. The story involves a horse, a cowboy and an Indian who live in a house together. It’s the horse’s birthday, so his roomies order up some bricks to build him a barbecue. A computer glitch results in too many bricks being delivered, which starts off a chain reaction of events, leading the crew on a big adventure. They eventually travel through the Earth’s core, arriving in a winter wasteland where they commandeer a giant mechanical penguin. Oh, and their house has been stolen by fish people. Stéphane Aubier and Vincent Patar utilize plastic toys for the most part, resulting in a primitive but consistently funny form of animation. They seem intent upon making the craziest animation film ever—and this is definitely a contender.
