GKIDS will be presenting a one-day-only screening of two wild and crazy stop-motion specials as A Town Called Panic: Double Fun arrives in select theaters on September 24, in honor of Art House Theater Day.
The double feature comprises new wild adventures from Oscar-nominated directors Stéphane Aubier and Vincent Patar (Ernest & Celestine), Christmas Panic and Back to School Panic.
The A Town Called Panic capers feature inventive visuals and slapstick plasticine antics — as usual, Cowboy and Indian are up to some harebrained scheme, with Horse left to clean up the mess.
In Christmas Panic, their out-of-control antics lead Horse to call Santa and cancel the presents. But the boys figure they can still save Christmas… if they break into their neighbor’s house to steal his yule log! In Back to School Panic, a class assignment yields a special prize, but only Pig knows the answer. Cowboy and Indian use a special shrinking potion to sneak into Pig’s brain, where they discover a sodium-packed world of pig cops riding in bacon cars and sausage cycles.
The screening will also feature an entertaining intermission of two classic Panic shorts: Lisa & Jan and Cow-Hulk.
