I'm so excited I am drawing on cars!

Posted by Toby Froud (Creator)

This is amazing, were at 85% funded I was so excited by this I started drawing on a car!

Okay so, it was a draw on my car for tumblr thing, but still I was excited about everything.

Seriously though, your support, your pledges and your sharing is astounding.  There has been such a wonderful reaction to the idea of live action puppets. This is my passion and
I am fueled by the support. 

Sarah, our little boy and I have been traveling across America and are continuing to England, where we will be updating you from the Froud home.

There is so much more to come and to be shown!  I'm trying to return emails, please continue sending questions if you have any.

As we are approaching the goal, I'm brainstorming stretch goals.  Thinking about additional puppets, effects, and even scenes that would add to the story.

Let's keep going!

      Toby this is really fantastic news. My father had Brian Froud books before I knew what any of his movies or puppets were. So I had been looking at these creations since I was very young and have always loved them. To know that the Froud style would return to a movie format is more than exciting to me. Froud all the WAY!
