Horrific, but wow is the animation exciting and original, 19 February 2008
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

This is a short animated film with a horrible plot--one that is just too bizarre for words and confusing beyond belief!! Two children catch a rabbit and tear in in half--revealing a bizarre little god who, though powerful, has really stupid powers. It can turn bugs into jewels, so the kids begin killing animals with reckless abandon to attract more bugs in order to become wealthy. Disgusting, yes, but you have to admire the kids for their ingenuity and capitalistic zeal!

Now I am sure my description sounds sick beyond belief, but the animations make this film work and work well. Heck, the animations are the best reason to watch this thing--it sure ain't the "make your brain rot" story which is funny but too weird for words! The animations appear to be a children's basic primer from the 1940s or 50s come to life. They all look like moving examples of this art style AND every item in the scenes have the name of the object written next to them (so as to teach the little ones to read).

Considering how gross and inappropriate this all is, that makes for one sick and funny joke--though certainly NOT for every taste. I liked it and truly admired its animation and twisted and nonsensical storyline. I sure wish my reading books had been like this one when I was a kid--I sure would have loved reading even more than I do now!

PS--After reviewing this movie, I showed it to my family who sat in horror--at least until they got the joke and began to enjoy the film. As for me, I liked it even better the second time (and so I updated my initial score of 8 to 9).
