Clement on the Can — New CLEMENTOONS Adventure

In this brand new episode of CLEMENTOONS, Clement makes a sled out of a crushed soda can and embarks on a wild ride. (Direct link to video)

CLEMENTOONS is my stop-motion animated adventure series about a little cartoon person on a perilous journey through the real world to the toyland of Melville. 

The animation is painstakingly shot frame by frame and then compiled into a movie. In this shot, a geared-down Lego motor pulls the sleds at a constant but very slow rate, while a still camera shoots at five second intervals.

There's no green-screen and no digital effects. When Clement goes through the brambles, he's really going through them.

The episodes will be released out of order. Each one begins with an escape and ends with a cliffhanger.

What a delightful way to begin my day! Loved watching Clement on his snowy adventure. He is lucky to have you.

Clement is a tough little guy -- he took a couple of good klops to the bean and just kept on going!

Who is the woman in the elaborate hat? She looks like the same woman who gave Clement a dime to see Miss Bubbles.
