A Barrel of Laughs
The Cliché: Crossing the divide somewhere between cartoon and live action, stop motion animation is usually flourished for comedic effect.

Paul King: “Bunny and the Bull has got serious heart to it. It is about somebody having a mini-breakdown, and processing this terrible thing.
I didn’t want to just, it’s not just comedy, there’s something else there.
There’s some big emotional bits to do, which Ed Hogg does really well. He’s one of those characters where you just want to shake him and go, ‘Come on! Can’t you see what you’ve got?’, and I think that’s what Bunny thinks of him as well.”
