Storyline

A forlorn looking creature on a shabby looking planet is down to its last food: One Old Pea (that's what the can, accurately, says). It also has a potted plant that's been a friend for a long time. While the creature is out foraging, unsuccessfully, for food, the plant produces a surprise that falls just out of sight. The creature returns, convinced the plant is its last available food. Will it notice the surprise in time? Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Very nice
3 December 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a claymation film that manages to be very entertaining--mostly because of the clever sensibilities of the film maker as well as the cuteness of the main character.

The story is set on a tiny planet covered in rubbish. On this dump-like planet lives an adorable green being who is hungry. When he runs out of peas (I loved the labels, by the way), he searches in vain for more. Ultimately, he decides to eat the one thing he thinks is left to eat. Too bad he didn't look a bit further.

Overall, a very simple story that shines because it looks so nice and it told so delightfully. Very enjoyable and clever.
