Angry Kid

Angry Kid is a series of stop motion animations from Darren Walsh at Aardman Animations, depicting the mini-adventures of a 15 year old British brat with an attitude problem. Most of the episodes contain adult content.

Angry Kid is not claymation as is usual with Aardman productions, but a combination of pixilation, mask replacement and live action. It is a technique pioneered by Walsh and involves taking a live actor, sitting perfectly still and being moved like a puppet, while masks are replaced, to give the effect of speech and shot frame by frame.

The series is currently shown on digital channel BBC Three and Dave between some shows from 9pm. The series is also show on Teletoon in Canada. Season One and Two have both been released on DVD in the UK, and Australia. All the Angry Kid animations are free to watch and/or download on the Atom Films website. A compilation DVD entitled Aardman's Dark side was also released, and it contains several season 2 episodes and an exclusive episode.

Due to the short length of each episode, Angry Kid has become famous for being downloaded to mobile phones and shown to friends at schools and workplaces.

Characters

  • Angry Kid:AKA Stanners The "hero" of this series. He is red-headed, has a runny nose, and is mean-spirited. He is often seen wearing a blue parka, even over his pajamas. His age is revealed in the series, he is about 15 years old. He writes right-handed, as revealed in "Who Do I Think I Am?". "Angry Kid" is his actual name, since the initials "AK" were printed on his spacesuit in a section from Who do I Think I am? He is apparently a Doctor Who fan, because he imitates the Daleks with a vibrator in one episode and he has a Dalek poster in his room.
  • Little Sis': Angry Kid's younger sister, who is inferior in age and size, but superior in intelligence to him. Angry Kid is sometimes seen bullying her, but she often gets her own back. She talks very little (ignoring the half-hour special), but has had one speaking part in the first series, while possessed by an evil spirit, similar to The Exorcist, "Shut the fuck up! I'm trying to watch the telly!". She also talks in the "Who Do I Think I Am?" angry kid specials, and the Aardman's Dark side exclusive episode.
  • Dad: Angry Kid and Little Sis' father. He often hits Angry Kid when he does something naughty (like the "Swearing" episode from series 1). He is also very fond of country music.
  • Speccy: Angry Kid's only known friend, who appeared in series two. He is a nerd, and why he and Angry Kid are friends is questionable. It is possible that he only hangs out with Angry Kid to get him in trouble. He is allergic to nuts, and once became severely disfigured after Angry Kid shoved a handful down his throat. Angry Kid is cruel to Speccy, as he asks Speccy to do his homework for him, or doesn't let him watch action films with him. As revealed in "Who Do I Think I Am?", Speccy's real name is Myles.
  • Captain Thunder pants: A band, or solo artist, who Angry Kid likes very much. In one episode, he insisted that his dad turn off his country music and put in Captain Thunder pants. Their lyrics are mostly random messages such as "One pound of middle cut pork leg joint," or "Stew my foot and call me Brenda". Angry Kid likes to accompany them on a car horn, or air horn. Captain Thunder pants is not to be confused with Captain Underpants, a super-powered children's book character.
