Do you have children who do not brush their teeth properly before they go to bed – or, indeed, are you one of those objectionable and obnoxious offspring who refuse to take dental care seriously?  If so, then you might want to spend a few minutes in the company of The Sugar Bugs – the millions of little creatures which live inside your mouth – watch and weep!

Joking aside, this animated short by John Kim is very funny – it tells a fairly straightforward tale which young kids will understand but is done with great panache and a few not so hidden movie references that adults will enjoy too.  Created for his BFA2 film at Cal Arts, Kim has created a monster here…!

The voices are created by his peers in the animation department at CalArts and I feel they should quite rightly now consider drama as a secondary subject.  If Kim's style seems familiar perhaps it is because you remember his previous animated outing, You've Been Mimed, which we featured on Kuriositas last year.
