..Aardman's "Purple and Brown," or Don Hertzfeldt's fluffy lil' cloud people?





Two very similar senses of humor: extremely basic, relatively easily animated characters offering hearty laughs via the random situations they're constantly thrown into.

Can anybody think of anything at all similar?

It's not a movie, but the first picture reminds me of the PC game, The Neverhood.



One of my favorite scenes from the game:

The Neverhood was really an underappreciated series, it was very creative, even if a bit kiddie at times, and very funny.

A dumb, kinda funny cutscene from the followup (Skullmonkeys):

But I can't really think of actual movies, I figure it'd work great as a short but not so much in any extended format.
