Table Kid Kirby (claymation)

Here are the first two installments in the classic "Table Kid Kirby" series created some time ago by Carrotkid (aka Canadian filmmaker Paul Whittington). The stopmotion animation is very well done. Having spent hours creating some much shorter clay animations myself, I would imagine it must have taken Carrotkid a long time indeed to create this series. In addition to the visual appeal, there's a bit of mystery as well as some parody (intentional I think) of the Phantasm movies, especially in the second video:

Part 2 (Realm of the Spiral Sky):
