P The Weirdest Thing in Toast and All of Mankind Images

On a rainy night, a magical jar of hazelnut spread walks over to a toaster and makes it come to life.  But then, a witch flies in and puts a spell on the toaster.  The toaster goes psycho, and pursues an innocent young man named Bob Knucklehead, who lives with his cat, Mario.  Mario is not impressed.

The epic tale of a good toaster gone bad, this short film was written, designed, and performed by children from Fighting Words in collaboration with Brown Bag Films. It premiered at the Galway Film Fleadh in July 2012.
