Product Description:

This unusual feature (a French-Belgian-Luxembourgian co-production) stylistically recalls the work of Art Clokey (GUMBY, DAVEY AND GOLIATH), with its lead cast consisting entirely of stop motion-animated children's toys. The premise concerns two such toys -- Cowboy (Stéphane Aubier) and Indian (Bruce Ellison) -- who plan to buy a birthday gift for their friend Horse (the voice of Vincent Patar) but accidentally destroy his house. A series of wacky, often hallucinatory adventures ensues that finds the trio journeying to the center of the earth, wandering across icy tundra and discovering a strange aquatic world inhabited by oddball beings with pointed heads. Benoît Poelvoorde (MAN BITES DOG) provides one of the voices.
