Becky & Joe are the creators of “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared”, a brilliant video series that mixes live action, stop motion, 2d animation, puppetry, learning, and a touch of pure evil. You can see the first two episodes here and here. They’ve just announced plans to make several more episodes and would love to do it independently so they can keep the creative spirit of the show alive.

Juan-Fontanive-04

Watch the videos below, the sounds that the machines make are a beautiful compliment to the movement of the animations. These are maybe my favourite works I’ve ever posted.
