My word, this 4-minute short is charmingly creepy! Beginning with a bit of intense, Cockney-ish singing around a well, we’re told – via the magic of stop-motion animation – about the titular handed cat.

It’s by turns gruesome, shocking and fairytale-like. The animated interlude works perfectly, and the score and dialogue definitely up the creepy-yet-cute factor. A must watch!
