Cheeky Claymation Short
6 March 2014 | by Theo RobertsonSee all my reviews

Sheriff Huckiss is borderline certifiable and his day is going to get more exciting because an alien race has landed on Earth and the aliens are here to steal the thumbs from humans

A Claymation science fiction comedy short and like every other Claymation animated short the cliché of " labour of love " is very fitting . It also merges good visuals with a very tongue in cheek style . I noticed Mr Plankton thinks there might be a subtext of gun control in there somewhere . I'm not entirely sure if it making any political comments such as that but I did find both interesting and amusing is the way it pokes fun of America in that the sheriff is an obvious parody of those characters you see in Westerns often played by the like of John Wayne and Tommy Lee Jones so much so I thought might have been a British produced short but it's not . I also thought the British influence extended to the aliens themselves being green blobs in metal suits with electronic voices which instantly reminded me of Daleks but it's not like DOCTOR WHO is unknown in the States and the idea of aliens in armoured shells goes back to HG Wells WAR OF THE WORLDS so any science fiction fan worth his salt will be aware of the concept . The makers of this are obviously of sci-fi and have a love of the genre along with a nice sense of humour so I really enjoyed this one
