Pizza Cuteness: Pusheen!

Slice Meredith Smith 2 comments

Slice has been experiencing a cute cat drought. Remember Caturday? Proof that there are lots of images of cats eating pizza, but are any cuter than Pusheen? I'm not actually sure if this is eating or huffing, but his little cat mouth is shaped to perfectly accommodate that slice. Awww.. Huff on Pusheen. For more cat cuteness visit pusheen.tumblr.com and everyday-cute.tumblr.com. More

Few things warm my heart quite as much as watching a flock of bug-eyed watermelons deliriously frolic and dance in a park to a happy tune. These are the happiest watermelons in the history of all watermelons. More

Adam Kuban 1 comment

The Seed is a two-minute animated voyage that follows an apple seed from planting to tree to apple—then through the human body, through the sewer system, and back into the ground for planting. It was funded by Adobe to show off the range of CS4 applications. The video appears after the jump.... More

In Videos: Trailer for 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs'

Adam Kuban 21 comments

The trailer for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs was just released online, and it looks fantastic in the literal sense of the word. As Erin pointed out in July, the 30-page children's book is a bit thin to write an entire animated feature from, so the plot now has a scientist, Flint Lockwood, who instigates edible storms, turning water into food, in hopes of ending world hunger. [After the jump, the trailers and more screenshots.]... More

In Videos: Lego Beer Song

Robyn Lee 3 comments

What is the malted liquor? What gets you drunker quicker? What comes in bottles or in cans? Beer! It's Friday, and you know what that means: It's time party like a bunch of drunk Lego men (and one chicken). This stop-motion video features the appropriately titled song "The Beer Song" by The Arrogant Worms. It's probably not what George Bizet had in mind for his music, but it's quite catchy. Watch the video after the jump.... More

In Videos: Cupcake Falls in Love with Squash in 'Sweet Dreams' (Stop-Motion Animation)

Robyn Lee 2 comments

What happens when a cupcake goes on a journey away from its world of candies and sweets—on a boat made of sugar cubes, naturally—and accidentally ends up an unknown land of naked fruits and vegetables? It learns some non-water soluble architectural tricks and falls in love with a squash. From animator and illustrator Kirsten Lepore comes Sweet Dreams, a 10-minute stop-motion animated film that captures a snippet of this adventurous cupcake's life. Don't miss the the great background music and the mostly food-based sets. Watch the video after the jump.... More

Your favorite unintelligible animated penguin Pingu might be inept at making pancakes, but at least he looks really cute while doing it. Watch this video to learn what not to do while making pancakes. That is, do not hurl them towards the wall or the ceiling. Watch the video after the jump.... More

In Videos: Eat Your Vegetables Song in 'Making Fiends' Animation

Erin Zimmer 1 comment

Singing animated vegetables really complicate the issue of eating more vegetables. They're just soo cute. Especially the family of singing pea pods. In this animated series called Making Fiends, which started as a web show and will premiere this Saturday on Nickelodeon, Charlotte is sick of seeing her cafeteria's usual spread of beef jerky, clams, and grape punch. She needs more vegetables. While she gets her chorus of carrots, bananas, and broccoli promoting the message: "eat vegetables with every meal or your lips will start to peel," of course, she can't actually eat them. Adorability factor interferes. Making Fiends is from the same creator of Muffin Films, the series of muffin shorts where anthropomorphized muffins do muffin dances and... More

How would you "cook" spaghetti with tomato sauce using nonfood ingredients? Amazing stop-motion artist Pes (Adam Pesapane) shows us how in his short film Western Spaghetti, which uses inedible items, including Rubik's cube "garlic," pick-up sticks "spaghetti," and Post-it note "butter." Watch the video after the jump.... More

In Videos: Food Fight

Robyn Lee 7 comments

In his stop-animation film Food Fight, motion graphics designer Stefan Nadelman portrays major wars around the world by battling the foods of the conflicting countries against one another. Boing Boing tv edited the film to include the names of the wars being depicted, helpful for those of us who forgot what we learned in history class.

British DJ Mr. Scruff must really like pie. Why else would he have made a music video portraying a city of potato-shaped people making pies and carrying them around like the hottest new accessory? Even the animals and robots love pie. Watch this animated world of pie excess after the jump.... More

In Videos: 'Gladiator' with Produce (Stop Animation)

Robyn Lee 2 comments

The blockbuster movie Gladiator was, you know, not bad, but it was missing that special something: anthropomorphic produce. If watching fruits and vegetables getting sliced and quartered disturbs you, you may want to look away. But I have a feeling you've seen it before. Watch all the carnage in three parts after the jump.... More
