The subject material is a little strange, but this is absolutely outstanding stop-motion animation. Technically it's as good as (or maybe even better than) the output of major studios.
The main character is an unpleasant little fellow (I'm assuming he's male) who doesn't seem to be able to resist pushing a button when it's in front of him. Without giving too much away, some of the buttons have results that Bobby did not foresee.
The strange creatures that populate the film have to be seen to be believed. They are all completely impossible, but the way that they appear as living things in the film makes them somehow plausible. One character in particular underlines that this is not a cosy cute "safe" animation of the type that the major studios churn out these days. Thank goodness for independent films.
