Wonderfully clever and funny
15 February 2008 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

PIB AND POG initially appears to be a cute children's animated short. Two cute characters appear on screen and look like Claymation characters, but I assume they were actually made on a computer. Then, a Mary Poppins-like voice begins narrating--introducing the characters and talking as if the two are the best of friends and this is a show for pre-schoolers. However, as the lady talks in a hideously upbeat manner, the characters beat up each other. As the film continues, the lady STILL talks as if there is nothing wrong--and the characters are now acting as violent as Itchy and Scratchy!! While this could have been a sick little cartoon due to its violence, it was very clever and funny because of the insipid narrator--plus, because the characters are so cartoon-like, the horrible violence isn't realistic and makes you laugh.

Extremely well animated and clever--this is a wonderful little film that stands up to repeated viewings.

By the way, Peter Peake who created this great film was also responsible for working on one of the Wallace & Gromit films! Also, there are several other Pib and Pog shorts--though this initial one is the longest.
