Hideous Henk

Henk is the most ugliest, angriest, little dog in the shelter and doesn’t expect to ever be adopted. Things change, however, when the seemingly lovable Michellefer comes along and adopts him. Hijinks ensue!

Hideous Henk is a pilot I was asked to direct and animate by Chris Stenger from Family Affair Films, and writer Britt Snel.

Made for the experimental pilot contest program ‘3LAB’ for Dutch Public Television, Hideous Henk was meant as a show for (young) adults, something that’s very rare in the Netherlands.
