    Was that really stephen hawking? I feel like they might have just stolen his voice generator and told people it was him.

    owes a lot to Aardman’s Pib and Pog.

    Pib & Pog’s Design meets Bill Plympton’s “25 Ways to quit smoking”….

    It owes more to Plympton’s “25 Ways To Quit Smoking”, but is a hoot in it’s own right.

      Hi, Dave. Do you own the copyright to this animation? I’m just in the process of completing my first website on weight loss, anti-aging and health and your animated short would be brilliant as a way to get people relaxed about this perennial problem. Is there any possibility of being able to use it there, even for a while with full credit given to all who helped you create it/ i’m new to this scene and not sure of protocols, but I do know about copyright laws.
      Can you have a think and get back to me. I’d be happy to pay you, if any of my affiliate links start paying off. When the site is live, I’ll send you the URL, so you can decide if my site deserves it. Cheers, Katharine
