Synopsis: 

An adult fantasy film, Meet the Feebles relates the events that lead up to the infamous 'Feebles Variety Massacre' - the day that rocked the puppet world.

The film is set in a contemporary world like ours, with one major difference. There are no human beings. The Feebles world is populated entirely by puppets - living, breathing, eating puppets, with larger than life human characteristics and weaknesses. Meet the Feelbes is a darkly comic satire on greed, lust and jealousy. A rich variety of characters form the basis of the multi-layered plot - a frog with a drug addiction, a rat making promo films starring cows and cockroaches, a journalist fly and many others.
