Fantastic Remake Of THE THING In The Style Of Stop Animation Kids TV Show PINGU

Regardless of whether you're familiar with Pingu (a kids stop-motion claymated television series about a family of penguins), you have got to check out this fantastic mash-up with The Thing.

I'm not sure just how widespread Pingu was, but I certainly remember watching it as a child here in the UK. If you do too, then prepare to have those memories scarred in this hideous and fantastically made remake of The Thing in the style of the show. Many thanks to Digital Spy for a heads up on the following video.

The Thing (also known as John Carpenter's The Thing) is a 1982 science fiction horror film directed by John Carpenter, written by Bill Lancaster, and starring Kurt Russell. The film's title refers to its primary antagonist: a parasitic extraterrestrial lifeform that assimilates other organisms and in turn imitates them. The Thing infiltrates an Antarctic research station, taking the appearance of the researchers that it kills, and paranoia occurs within the group.

Pingu is a British-Swiss stop-motion claymated television series created by Otmar Gutmann. The series was produced by The Pygos Group and Trickfilmstudio for Swiss television. The show is about a family of anthropomorphic penguins at the South Pole. The main character is the family's son and title character, Pingu.
