Panique au village (A Town Called Panic), the more kid-friendly of the two, uses stop-motion animation to create a Gumby-like experience. Cowboy and Indian decide to celebrate their roommate Horse's birthday by building him a barbecue. Due to a wayward coffee cup placed on the keyboard, their online order for a few bricks becomes millions of bricks. They pile the bricks on top of the house to get them out of the way, but then the house collapses and a pathway is opened to another world, leading to great adventures by the trio. Sounds silly, and it is, but it's great fun and a treat to watch.
|All kinds of chaos going on here. . . .|
|With the charming characters and beautifully drawn images, dialogue is unnecessary.|
Bottom line, I'll give 3 stars each to these imported gems.
