Don't Hug Me I'm Scared

Don't Hug Me I'm Scared is a 2011 short film produced by THIS IS IT Collective and directed by Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling. The film is a parody of children's television shows which starts out like the typical kids show but becomes progressively darker. The juxtaposition of innocent looking characters singing a happy sounding tune with the embedded disturbing imagery leaves viewers with a WTF? feeling at the end.

Becky & Joe have released two sequels called Don't Hug Me I'm Scared II which deals with the concept of time and Don't Hug Me I'm Scared III which looks at the concept of Love. Both can be seen on their YouTube page here.
