Great animated short
19 January 2001 | by (Saint Paul, MN) – See all my reviews

This is a very funny short. There is no dialogue, and the animation is quite unique - especially the way photographs of people are integrated into the animation (possibly the greatest moment, the space chicken shoots his laser, hits a photo of a guy, and it turns out crooked, with the guy's hair standing straight up).

It is too bad they had to go and make a stupid series out of this short. Cartoon Network is almost completely worthless...have to stay up until 4 AM to see anything good, otherwise we just get Cartoon Cartoons.
