Storyline

The ChubbChubbs introduces the alien inhabitants of the Planet Glorf, including Meeper, its earnest but oh so awkward hero, a singing Diva, the Zyzaks, 20 foot-tall red-eyed bullies, and the ChubbChubbs. In this debut short, Meeper valiantly tries to warn the patrons of the Ale-E-Inn, an intergalactic watering hole with its own constellation of stars, of impending danger only to find himself face to face with the toughest creatures in the universe.

Trivia

The credits say: "How Many Babies were born whilst making this movie? None". This is a little jab at the animation colleagues/competitors at Pixar and their habit of listing "Production babies" in their credits. See more »

Goofs

After Meeper gets thrown out of the inn for the second time, we can hear a distinctive sound of the door being locked. However, a minute later, when Meeper gets inside again through the roof, a messenger comes in opening the door from the outside without any problems. See more »

fantastic with many aliens!
26 July 2013 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

This short movie won the makers the Best Short Animation Oscar in 2003. I agree with it. This is a funny, beautiful and unique story with merry songs. The main character is a tender alien who likes singing a song and longs in be a singer. However, it does not seem to come true. One day, big enemies attacked the town, what does he do then? In the film, there are various unique and cute aliens including Yoda who is in a StarWars. So, the person who love alien like me may really enjoy it. In addition, I also like the music. Their singing and dancing are strange and funny, but very cute. However, I don't recommend watching for young children. It's totally cute, but the scenes of the fight are too frightened. If you are not too easily scared, you should watch right now and then go to karaoke! It's only 5 minutes and their visuals and music are fantastic!
