Funny and Creepy Video of the Day: “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared 4”


My absolute favourite video series on the entire Internet (previously featured here and here and here) returns with a new episode. “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared” is terrific series of shorts by Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling that utilize puppets, live-action, and animation to create a sort of bizarro Muppet world.

Every episode begins as a cheerful kids show and eventually shifts into something a little more creepy and sinister. Wonderfully dark humour, exquisite set and character design, flawless editing and art direction; this is as good as it gets as far as I’m concerned.

Watch “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared 4” below!

Best of Kickstarter: “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared”


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.

The sequel we never knew we wanted. This short by Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling is fantastic. The writing, the animations, the sets, everything, just brilliant. Ahhhh, I have to watch it again. It has the same vibes as the creepiest video on Youtube (cocka-doodly-doodly-doo).

If you watched the first episode “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared” you know this is gonna get a little dark. Watch it below!
