Pig-Goat-Banana-Mantis…? Sounds more like a kids’ handsgame than anything else… but unfortunately it seems that the series is a No-Go for that famous but unknown US network that commissioned this pilot.

Our admired Nick Cross (whose Black Sunrise is still to be unveiled) uploaded a couple of weeks ago this episode of the series that never were to his youtube account, a work conceived by Dave Cooper and Johnny Ryan which he got to animate… the bad thing about this unfortunate outcome is that we’ll never get to know what those gravity pickles taste like…. clearly the producer had no love for pickles…

PigGoatBananaMantis live in a semi-isolated cement treehouse they inherited from their Old Uncle Robot. They grew up in the treehouse, raised by their Uncle, until the trithalium crystals in his cerebrex burned out, causing him to permanently deactivate, leaving them suddenly on their own. Because they all grew up in the same treehouse together, they have developed a really close bond, but they still have very different personalities that often clash in dramatic ways. However, even though they do battle with each other from time to time, they always come together whenever a crisis threatens their home or strange family unit.

it clearly reads DO OPEN!
