THE SECRET ADVENTURES OF TOM THUMB / BBC Bristol - 1993
It's Time For Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. A pal of mine sent me this wild 'n' weird little flick to check out, so, here it is for all of us to enjoy! It has an ERASERHEAD feel to it and is filled with some very interesting creatures and characters, using stop motion animation.
At the start, you get a glimpse of this artificial inseminoid serum in a big flask...
It's added to both male and female hormones, then zapped with an electric charge!... Viola!
Eegah!! sent over a nice little sound clip for our earjoyment, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button located there next to the giant thumb, NOW, Rufus The Gnat!.. Here's a taste of... THE SECRET ADVENTURES OF TOM THUMB!
Pa and Ma Thumb give thanks for their blessed event, the addition of little Tom to the family.
Tom is kidnapped and ends up in a genetic lab (like Plum Island) where he wanders around inspecting all the amazing machines and equipment therein.
Everywhere you look, poor animals and things are being tortured and experimented on if only to satisfy the craven needs of the ones responsible for the abominations.
Tom doesn't really know what to make of it all... He just knows, it ain't right!
The boogie man shows up in the form of a doctor from Hell! The dude's wearing his gear and mask because he's not about to contract any of the crap he's spreading in the lab, no way, heaven forbid!!
Tom barely escapes down a drain and ends up in a world of curious little people,
A giant comes stomping his way through the mini town and crushes houses and little ones!
Pa Thumb shows up in a vision to remind Tom that he needs to make his way back home.
Tom and his little warrior friend search out the machine that controls everything, then, the friend breaks and disables the controlling element...
Tom is now back with his parents as a normal child and the moment is filled with the strongest force in the universe... LOVE! Tune in Wednesday when Eegah!! has yet another weird flick for us to check out!
