Storyline

Professor Duton Lang is an obese scientist who has made many great discoveries. When he finally weights 497 pounds he develops a compound which permits him to eat as much as he wants and still lose weight. He gets down to 150 pounds in weight but is still the same body-size as when he weighed nearly 500 pounds. Eventually, he becomes a minus-weight and floats off into outer space.

A very charming little cartoon!
12 September 2002 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is a short that features an incredibly odd and quirky character named Duton Lang. No description could adequately do Lang justice. I can't really do justice to the cartoon. Duton Lang is quite a character-but the same can also be said of the narrator as well. Quirky, far too neglected short. Worth tracking down. Most recommended.
