Some Quay Brothers' Animations

So, I was discussing my project with Mr. Barnes, and I expressed my concern that the Heidi Ott Dolls, while they hold their poses well, might not be ideal for the fluid realistic motion I was aiming to achieve in my animation. He suggested I take a look at animations by Quay Brothers. While their animated characters are far from realistic, they took the limitations and flaunted them to a point, where the viewer accepted the bizarre charactersitics as inherent qualities of the characters, and not mistakes. I forgot the strings and the abrupt movements, and was absorbed by the story being told.
