IMDb Rating: 8.3/10
“I like rusty spoons…” is the first line of the first episode. In that moment we knew it was a hit. Very simplistic looking animation, with a slightly uncomfortable feeling. The voice of the main character and the inflexions used are brilliant and oh, that laughter! If you like being slightly creeped out and being in a continuous limbo of waiting for something to happen, then this is for you!
“Salad Fingers is a British flash animation internet series created by David Firth in July 2004. It gained rapid internet popularity, such that the San Francisco Chronicle ranked it among the “Top 10” pop culture phenomena for 2005.
The cartoon revolves around the eponymous “Salad Fingers”, a thin, green, mentally troubled alien who inhabits a desolate world with three lifeless, scruffy finger puppets. The first seven episodes of Salad Fingers were shown back-to-back in Australia at the 2007 Sydney Underground Film Festival at the Factory Theatre, along with a variety of other animated short films, during the “Re-Animation” session.
The series ended on 24 November 2013, eight months short of a decade. There were just ten short episodes.”
