You should watch this, it's the best. (the good part starts around 30 seconds in)

Higglety Pigglety Pop

Here is a preview of the stop motion/puppet film of Maurice Sendak's Higglety Pigglety Pop or there must be more to life. One of his best books about the terrier Jenny and her search for finding some meaning in her life beyond getting everything that she wants. It's going to be included on the dvd of Where the Wild Things are, as Spike Jonze produced it. It was directed by the Canadian duo Chris Lavis and Maciek Szczerbowski.
They also made Madame Tutli-Putli, an amazing animated film you can see here.

More information than you require

This is a moleman as described by John Hodgman in More information than you require.
Here is Hodgman interviewed at brief length about his subject of study.

That is all.
