Welcome to the kingdom of quirkiness, the world of surreal animation.

Welcome to the kingdom of quirkiness, the world of surreal animation. Here anything can happen: meeting God in the brilliant Wednesday with Goddard; dissecting internet cats in Brenda Lien's Call of Cuteness; or learning the alphabet in Peter Millard's brand new piece Six God Alphabet Peter. Also on the menu: body cells playing football, kids playing atomic war and playboys acting tough. Filled with cheeky humour, defying expectations, this eclectic programme shows an impressive diversity of styles and techniques. A refreshing treat for animation lovers that will put a (bemused) smile on your face.
