The Chubbchubbs! is a nice animated short that won the Oscar in its category. There are a lot of references to science-fiction movies. Obvious references are Darth Vader, Yoda and Jar Jar Binks from Star Wars and we see E.T. in a bicycle. Harder to find but also there are references to Alien, The Day the Earth Stood Still and Lost in Space. This movie is fun because you can spot the little references, but without those things it is quite good anyway. The animations are very well done, the story has a nice little twist and simply said, it is funny. Most animated short movies have the biggest laugh in the end, The Chubbchubbs! is no exception, but there are quite some good moments before that as well.
It was a great and very entertaining animated short. It had very impressive animation, really great music, great characters, very great visuals and a very fun story. It's one of the best animated shorts of 2002. I've seen this short movie before "Stuart Little 2." I would recommend this short movie to both kids and adults.
A fun 5-minute short by Sony Animation made in 2002. It follows Meeper, a janitor at the Ale-E-Inn in a distant alien planet. He dreams of being a singer and often imagines himself performing karaoke. After he is thrown outside by guards of the bar, Jar Jar Binks tells him (yes, THE Jar Jar Binks who is surprisingly not annoying in this) that the ChubbChubbs are coming. The ChubbChubbs are big monster gladiators who plan on destroying aliens. The main point of the film is Meeper trying to warn the aliens inside the bar that the ChubbChubbs are coming, although they ignore him over and over. In the end, ChubbChubbs are revealed to actually be baby chicks.
The ChubbChubbs is a fun movie that has plenty of sci fi references, such as Darth Vader and Yoda arm wrestling inside the bar, E.T. sitting at a table, and Alien sucking on a drink. It's a great film for kids and definitely adults, who will get more of the inside references than kids. A great short that even can be compared to Pixar.
