stop motion cooking

Stop-motion animation is always a little disconcerting to me, but at the same time I must admire the fanatical attention to detail required. That mini-pizza doesn't look half bad, either!

That was charming! I enjoyed the sound effects too. And I agree, I would eat that mini pizza. Looked good!

That was a very odd little animation and I'm not sure how I feel about it.

Given Bones Pizza's inexplicable decision to place a cat at the heart of both the cooking and the delivery systems, I'm afraid they are heading for an early and fatal supply chain disruption.

This is amazing, and I'd eat about 35 of those pizzas right now.

This isn't Mr Bone's only food-production venture. He's in hamburgers and popcorn, too!

I've seen similar videos with plastic food, but the advantage of using real food is that the end result looks really tasty.

It does, although the delivery costs for such a tiny pizza morsel seem like they must be a problem. Are those coins a suitable tip for a cat figurine? Is its small size indicative that its cost of living is also smaller? If I tipped paper money would it be able to carry it? Should I get some dollar coins in case I end up having to tip a toy cat?

I love this! I had meant to post about it at some point and promptly forgot. Tiny food preparation is such a delight to watch

Thanks, clavdivs, just what I needed on a gloomy Sunday morning!

That's a very inefficient shop layout - too much space between stations. Especially for something with no feet!

He also needs to learn to shut the refrigerator door sooner, so he doesn't have to go back and shut it later.

The way Mr Bone walks, moving his arms back and forth with a stepping noise, reminds me of how Horse walks in the A Town Called Panic animations. And the whole aesthetic reminds me of the clever animations made by PES.

Oh my god him running to and answering the phone absolutely took me out and I am crying laughing….

I did wonder if someone posted this in thread but couldn't find it and Countess if you did, it's a nice find.
(close the door....I loved the walking sounds and kitty chiming in)

I want to be able to think about anything other than the fact that Bone didn't wash their hands between answering the phone and smooshing out dough, and I can't.

I discovered that creator tomosteen has many more stop-motion videos on his Youtube channel that don't involve Mr Bone, but that do have cooking with Lego, and dice. They're all pretty great!

May I present the horror of Make Chocolate From Marbles.
