We made two stop motion films for Innocent last month. The first one has been performing well on social media with over 900,000 views in its first week. The second one has just gone up and is going down well too.

Here’s an animation we did for Danone. Animated by Duck, it features a farmer who insisted on being in every shot – often more than once at a time. Ooh Danone.
This picture of Dog, Monkey and Mole has been up in our local pub for three years now. There used to be an identical one in the same spot, but with different heads.
Getting our version up wasn’t easy and involved sly photography, elaborate distractions, lots of tools, polyfilla and a trench coat. It’s been there longer than any of the staff – so we are official Victorians.
The Old Mout (Heineken) sheep posters drawn up by our Duck can be seen everywhere, sometimes massively.
You can see the two animations we did for them here. There are tube escalator versions coming very soon too.
Here are the idents from this week’s documentary themed Bar Shorts, Dog & Rabbit’s regular short film night.

Who Stop Framed Our Rabbit?
Our brand new film tells all – from 2D drawing to 3D print out to big night out.
#13. Penderel’s Oak. High Holborn. WC1. Mixed Grill.
Not many films are called Grilletrope these days. Watch it here.
This film stars Rexley, Roy and Bloodbag from Dog Judo.
The mixed grill isn’t Wetherspoon’s proudest moment and we should have given it a star lower actually. Never mind.
Naked Reg has made a brand new exercise guide to get the nation healthy.
He might not know what he’s talking about, but he’s quite good. Vote Naked Reg.
Here it is.
Our latest film for McCoys has just gone up today and has already got over 88,000 views on Facebook. So there.

More on the making of our 3D Rabbit soon.
If anyone at Dog & Rabbit gets Huntingdon disease it’s our Otter, Jez. He just… gets it. And he’s used all of that expertise to animate Dog & Rabbit’s brand new film on the subject for Nature.
Watch it here.
Making this Scorism involved taking a huge bag of toys into a pub. Nothing better than that you’d think. But… no, because Thomas the Tank Engine Spoiled it for everyone. He’s a right pig, it turns out.
Watch it here.

Pubs cannot charge ┬ú5 a pint and expect to get away with it – if the barmaid is asleep.

#12. Forge & Co. Shoreditch High Streeet. E1.
This is our first non-pub Scorism. It describes itself as a ‘unique social space’ and a canteen. Nothing wrong with canteens. ┬ú20 for the steak and chips, but it was a beefy portion and extremely nice in the mouth.
Watch it here.
#10. The Blue Lion. GrayÔÇÖs Inn Road. WC1.
LetÔÇÖs salute this pub for having a pool table. They could have put an extra dining table in to serve more wimps more lunches ÔÇô but they resisted.
Our political correspondent, Duck, knows people who know people who know people in parliament. BIG news for animators in the forthcoming budget.
Dog & Rabbit presents ‘Work It Out with Naked Reg’.
He’s Rexley’s friend in Dog Judo, and he’s entirely nude.
In this film he teaches you the merits of sit ups and suggests how many you should do.
Dog only reacts to the bits of the news he chooses to.
Our Manatee is a creative writer. Sometimes it’s hard to tell if he’s being creative or sarcastic.
We have just finished animating some stuff for Nature for their latest video. The process of methylation and histones is what we’re into at the moment (or we were until the very second we’d rendered the last scene). The video sections were orchestrated by Thom Hoffman, who is good at this stuff. The aniamtion was by Mole and Dog. You can see it here.
Here is a music video we did for rising-star, country-singing, twin-sisters, Ward Thomas.
Made by Dog & Rabbit’s Monkey, Fu. With assistance from Jez the Otter.
He’s Spanish. He’s pink. He’s a very good singer. He loves to love. He likes U2. Don’t let any of that put you off. He’s Mr Valentine. He’s… Retamero Lopez. Watch it here.
Sang by our Squirrel, David Retamero Lopez. Animated by our Otter, Jez Pennington.
Hedgehog, our Southern Hemisphere correspondent represents all South Africans.

Our brand new film for Nature Video is now online. See it here.
It was made for Macmillan’s Nature magazine with support from the World Gold Council.
It is called Tiny Treasure: The Future of Nano Gold – and is for hardcore nano gold fans, casual nano gold fans and people who traditionally depise nano gold alike.
Tattooless Dog adds, “I think we’re over the worst with these star tattoos – there surely can’t be many new ones coming through? It’s like My Little Pony meets… just pony.”
This is the first Wetherspoons weÔÇÖve committed a Scorism in. These buffalo wings are really very nice, too. They used to come with an amazing hot sauce – but when sauce tastes that nice it is probably deadly I suppose.
But bring the sauce back. Stop motion animators live slow and die fast.
Our Dog was going to be sarcastic about bermuda shorts, but didn’t think it was needed.
You won’t cope well in 2015 without being up to date with the lingo of 2011, so here is Monkey to help us all out.
Dog & Rabbit’s Magpies, Addictive TV will be doing their unique and wonderful thing at Rich Mix, Bethnal Green, on Thursday 26th February – along with trip-hop originator Howie B and Kizzie Crawford. Tickets are ┬ú10 in advance and you can find out more at www.richmix.org.uk (flyer by Monkey.)
Our lunch became a crime scene when some good ol’ boys in a pickup truck stole some peas. The police were called and a medium speed car chase ensued. We caught most of it on camera. It all turned out nicely and no charges were pressed.
Happy New Year from Dog & Rabbit & Mole.
Singing Spanish pink sensation, Retamero Lopez, sings for you. It’s a classic and he just made it classicer.
Merry Christmas from everyone at Dog & Rabbit.
Sang by Squirrel and animated by Otter.
Christmas special time!
We review a stop motion Christmas meal with the help of a holy man.
Brand new Scorism.
The Bountiful Cow on Eagle Street. WC1.
They do the most brilliant steaks in here. We chose ‘Prime rib beef hash’, though – which was damn nice.
It ain’t cheap but it is damn nice, and those two things are linked I expect. You get an egg on the top as well, which we chucked in the air.
An update on human rights from someone in the know.
Scorism (stop motioning your lunch and marking it out of ten) continues. Watch it here.
The White Hart has been a pub since 1216 (the year, not the time.) It adds pressure to the occasion knowing that people have been stop-motioning their lunches here for the best part of a millennium.
Our financial expert, Dolphin, responds to the chancellor’s Autumn Statement.
Not everyone has got their phone on vibrate have they?
Tom Jennings (Tortoise) has got his Nose Show up at Soho Radio on Great Windmill Street.

Go and have a look if you don’t believe me (Dog).
Scorism website coming soon.
The country’s favourite torturer, Dead Frankie Fraser, has died.
A tennis player is to marry someone. Probably the woman who watches him play. If that means more shots of her clapping when he scores a point, she is going to need her own channel.
And, run and hide…
Today we had lunch with Steve and Ian from JWT, in The Grenadier.
We made a very quick turnaround animation while the ham, egg and chips unfolded. The meal was worthy of the high mark.
And that is ‘scorism’. (Scorism is the best thing since cubism and one of the best things since impressionism. Website coming soon.) Watch the stop-frame animation here.
Our economics expert, Dolphin, offers some financial advice.
Man and Monkey, Fu – modelling a very powerful piece of fashion.

Thank you to everyone who came on Thursday night and made it such a brilliant and memorable night. (Thank you to all the people who nearly came too ÔÇô they are all too often forgotten.)
We are now ready to work like dogs and produce like rabbits.
Hope to see lots more of everyone.
Long live Dog & Rabbit.
People don’t seem to like trolls.
The title of this post says it all. And the picture says even more. And this trail of random letters says a little extra kdfjhlkjfsskljjhkjbzxcf. Here we go, raaaaargh.
Monkey, our technology correspondent keeps you in the loop with news and opinion.
Dog thought he was already dead. Rabbit thought he was called Jeff Kay until today.
Dog & RabbitÔÇÖs launch night is fast approaching. WeÔÇÖre all ready to unleash ourselves on the world – and have got 7 days to get even more ready. ItÔÇÖs going to be a big night so make sure it is in your diary (or even written on the front cover of your diary.)
She’s in the newspaper so she must be news.
Apocalypse was the theme for last nightÔÇÖs Bar Shorts event in Shoreditch. Lots of faces, familiar and new, assembled in The Book Club for some end-of-the-world entertainment.
Chris Shepherd (Dog & RabbitÔÇÖs Goldfish) was our host, and each section started and ended with a specially made ident by Jez Pennington (Otter) and Matt King (Duck).┬áSee them in the Work section.
Films by Michael Marczewski, Jake fried, Magali Charrier, Ying Ping Mak, Leop Verrier, Richard Condie, Marcus Armitage, Gergely Wootsch, Kirsten Lepore, Dog Judo, Emma Burch and more were enjoyed by all.
And it was finished off with a DJ set by Fu (Monkey).

I’ll post a link when it is online.
Well done┬áScotland. Welcome back. You’re allowed to listen to the Beatles and watch Fawlty Towers again.
Scottish referendum vote time. Hope this helps.
