Jacob Stalhammar's The Cats of Mars Meet the Toy Car was a fascinating animated short for me
tavm from Baton Rouge, La.
2 October 2012
Just discovered on the Vimeo site as linked from Cartoon Brew, this
Swedish animated short by Jacob Stalhammar. It depicts four felines on
the red planet finding a toy robot from Earth, I think, that does
nothing but digs holes and plays with rocks. This robot has interfered
with the cats sense of fun such as blocking the inception of their
favorite TV show so they send him back to where he came from...I'll
stop there and just say how artistically fascinating the design from
Stalhammar is and hearing the quaint music from various public domain
shorts, not the mention the narration from Jeff Crackower, added to the
alluring sensation of viewing it. In fact, I watched it twice in order
to make sure I was aware of it's uniqueness. So on that note, I
recommend The Cats of Mars Meet the Toy Car.
