Storyline

Charlie, working on a junkjard, always trying to help people in the most impossible ways with junk from his work place, hears from a German professor, that there is a bird, a Belgish Kongo, that eats metal. Charlie sets out on a ridiculous hunting expedition to catch one. With some music - the birds love music - and a strange worm he is able to catch one, but even then the bird offers some even more over-the-top surprises.

Amazing
24 August 2003 | by (Los Angeles CA) – See all my reviews

From what one can piece together on IMDB, the real talent behind this film is star Charley Bowers, who wrote and directed many early films using stop motion animation, very early on in the life of the movies. From the summary, you only get a slice of "It's A Bird" on the Johnny Legend Weird Cartoon tapes (the longer slice being on Vol II).

What is here, however, is strange and facinating, and suggests Bowers is a real forgotten man in the history of movie fantasy. See whatever version you can.
