A blind man arrives at a traffic light... You can fill in the rest. Or not, because the equally witty and macabre life lessons of Cartoon-box always have precisely the odd twist you did not see coming.
With exactly the right amount of detail, Joost Lieuwma gives his seemingly plainly animated protagonists the leading role in various embarrassing, naughty and violent animations, including poisoning a partner, sleeping with a forest fairy and replacing a Star Wars light sabre with a dildo. In the world of Cartoon-Box, these situations invariably end in death and destruction. Therefore, these macabre life lessons are not exactly applicable to our own lives. But no tears will be shed over it.
