Storyline

Animated plastic toys like Cowboy, Indian and Horse have problems, too. Cowboy and Indian's plan to surprise Horse with a homemade birthday gift backfires when they destroy his house instead. Surreal adventures take over as the trio travel to the center of the earth, trek across frozen tundra and discover a parallel underwater universe where pointy-headed (and dishonest!) creatures live. With panic a permanent feature of life in this papier mâché town, will Horse and his girlfriend ever be alone? Written by Anonymous

Great fun for the young and young at heart
23 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In a cinematic world to often populated by cynicism and anti-heroes, it's good to see that some things can just be fun and good natured for the sake of entertainment. In an age where comedy is declared funny by how much a person yells or acts like a petulant child; and the idea of a solid script and story are thrown out in favor of improvisation, it's refreshing to see a movie that's crafted with care from beginning to end. Trying to explain the plot of this film would only take away from the fun of seeing it unfold before your very eyes. The crudely animated adventures of Horse, Cowboy, Indian and the rest of the town of Panic are full of life and excitement, much more than many of the so called animated masterworks that come out of the USA. It's nearly impossible to view this movie without a smile on your face. Taking elements from classic comedy entertainment such as Bugs Bunny and Warner Bros. cartoons, the Marx Brothers, and a little Three Stooges thrown in for good measure, A Town Called Panic should be viewed and enjoyed by the whole family. Do yourself a favor and see it for yourself.
