(Re)Animations: Gruesomestein's Monsters

The creation of Mark Ackland and Richard Durants, "Gruesomestein's Monsters" is
a series of short [5-minute] animated films about silly monsters... that premiered on the Nelvana anthology series "Funpak" on YTV.
The entire series is available online at YouTube. The Hyde/Jerk character really reminds me of the classic animated short "Hair-Raising Hare" and its Gossamer character. Unfortunately their production blog doesn't seem to have been touched since 2006 (which is a shame). Though I did find mention of the series again on Ackland's personal blog, Poop Tooth!, describing their search for a new distribution studio it was also outdated (last post in June 2008).

    Nothing disturbs me more than becoming an instant fan of something so good, only to find out that there are no more being made. Sigh.

    Worst feeling in the world, D.M. Looking back at this post now, I wonder if they ever released any sort of short compilation DVD or anything? Maybe I can get in touch with the creators and see...
