Credited cast:


A rectangular pink cartoon character is jealous. Jealous of all those people with a nose. He doesn't have one and everytime he put glasses on, they just roll of his face. This is a big problem, since he is short-sighted. Bumping into closed doors seems to have become a daytime job. Since our little pink friend can be quick tempered, his lovely blue pony-tailed wife is getting more concerned by the day. Especially since her husband has the habit to stay out of bed all night, trying to manufacture artificial noses which are doomed to fail. She finds a company that will solve her husband's nose problems, but might create another. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

A short that everyone can enjoy...finally!
14 April 2005 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

Unlike the hardcore/juvenile stuff that litters a lot of the "twisted" animation festivals out there, Out of Joint is an amusing little romp built around a simple idea. Wrapped in quintessential British cheeky humor, the short delights not only in storyline but in character design. Done in flash, the two main characters are very likable and have a sweet relationship. The "male" of the couple is desperate because he lacks a nose. His partner stands by her man, eventually helping him get over his insecurities. One could read deeper into this dynamic-- how women are the ones who have to continually prop up a man's ego--but that's not the point. I won't spoil the ending for those who haven't seen it, but Peter Peake delivers a delightful twist leaving you with a good laugh and smile.
