Very funny animated short produced as an animation-school project. The voice of Lugmeyer is Chris Miller, who would go on to DreamWorks and eventually co-direct Shrek 3 (Lead Story Board of Shrek II, Story Board Shrek I) and do voice work as Gepetto and The Mirror in all films.

The short was featured in MTV's liquid television, along with Millers simultaneously released work, "Lee Press on Limbs".

The short features classic cartoon animation ala Warner Brothers. Lugmeyer is a despicable character. The punchline is one of the best short punchlines you'll see, up there with the infamous Bambi vs. Godzilla.
