A new and funny look at the food chain!

'A pungent version of the complaint "Waiter, there is a fly in my soup".' The (Melbourne) Age

There are many critter communities in the food chain. An eclectic group of insects feeds on garbage from the local restaurant, and try to invade the restaurant dining room...until they find they too are food for another creature.

Other titles in the series are:

Turtle World - A powerful allegory about the survivability of Homo sapiens.

Cell Animation - You can escape in nature.

Banjo Frogs - An adolescent frog learns to fit in with new neighbors.

Possum's Rest - Can humans and wildlife co-exist in the suburbs?

"Hilligoss creates animation that not only appeals to children but strives to make interactions between the nature characters and the humans as educationally entertaining as possible...This film is perfect for young children because Hilligoss illustrates without any dialogue and his animation technique is colorful and captivating."
