The Kid Should See This

Mogu & Perol

Watch more with these video collections:

Mogu is a young bigfoot boy who makes delicious food on Yummy Island. Little Perol likes to stop by his house right when the food is ready. What happens when Perol starts to selfishly take over meals? Watch this award-winning stop-motion short from Japan: Mogu & Perol (Morimori-shima no Morg to Perol).

Some harsh words are used during a wild berry misunderstanding, and soon there’s a hunger zombie loose on the island, but the friends manage to find their way back to each other. All it takes in the very end is a delicious meal.

And hopefully, Perol will help with cooking in the future.
