The Tale of Baby Moose

Please choose a format above.

This is a short where somebody redid the narration for the original Moose Baby short, but instead of calling him “Moose Baby," they call him “Baby Moose."

Why was such a thing produced? Were they focus grouping the two options in different test markets? Is “Moose Baby” some sort of horrible slur in non-English speaking markets? Were they blowing through absolute mounds of cocaine at the Moose Baby studios?

No matter what, it’s an incredible historical oddity that fortunately found its way into the hands of the only group of people on the planet who would care about it. Thirteen years after we riffed that wet rat on stilts, Moose Baby, we’re riffing the same short but where the narrator says “Baby Moose” instead of “Moose Baby.” If that doesn’t sound like the greatest thing on Earth to you: A) What the hell are you still doing reading this? B) Please join Mike, Kevin, and Bill for The Tale of Baby Moose.

This was originally FREE to our 2022 Kickstarter backers at the $50 level and higher! It's also a NEW, uncut, HD transfer of the short we riffed long ago.
