Pingu is a popular claymation TV series for kids created for Swiss television, featuring a family of penguins living at the South Pole. The Thing was a horror movie originally done in the 1950's with a John Carpenter remake from the 1980's, which starred Kurt Russell and Wilford Brimley. The 50's version was campy schlock, while the 80's version was pretty killer. Now, from the mind of Lee Hardcastle comes a different version altogether. This one starring cute little claymation penguins.
