These 19 short animations place a lower premium on grotesquery than the usual "Spike & Mike's Sick and Twisted Animation" package—most of them would be rated PG—but the artistic quality is as high as I remember from the Spike & Mike imprimatur in its heyday. The best of the bunch is Trevor Jimenez's Key Lime Pie (2007), an absurdist micro-noir about a man whose mania for the title dessert leads to an encounter with the grim reaper. Other honorable mentions: Andrew Ford's computer-generated Stillwater S. (2007), about a pigeon fancier with a homicidal home security system; Artur de Pince's hand-drawn The Crab Revolution (2004), about crustaceans in an existential rut; and Carlo Vogele's For Sock's Sake (2008), a stop-motion mini-epic about laundry in peril.
