WEST COAST PREMIERE

In the tradition of Buster Keaton and Charlie Chaplin, physical comedy reaches new animated absurdity in Pat & Mat. These universally loved handymen are a couple of well intentioned inventor types that come up with illogical solutions to simple home problems, with often ridiculous and offbeat outcomes. Structured in short vignettes that feature a new challenge every ten minutes or so, Pat and Mat make one silly mistake after another. This allows for easy viewing for young children and keeps it fresh for adults and older siblings. It’s a knee-slapping good time! And with no dialogue or subtitles everyone can enjoy the zany problem-solving confusion. It’s fun for the whole family!

Recommended for ages 5+
