Meet the Feebles was director Peter Jackson's second feature film.  He describes the film as "a kind of Rodger Rabbit meets Brazil". Says Jackson, "I decided from the outset to make exactly the sort of puppet film that I would enjoy. It was a challenge to make myself laugh, and since I still chuckle whenever I see Meet the Feebles, I guess I succeeded."
