I've watched this video (and the entire series I think) like ten times in the last 24 hours.
Don't Hug Me I'm Scared 6
Don't Hug Me I'm Scared VI, DHMIS 6, DHMIS VI
(Here's a quicky for you guys.)
Sad to see all the creativity come to an end, but "Dont Hug Me I'm Scared 6" offers the same amount of brilliant puppetry and dark themes that has kept the series running for so long and acts as a perfect wrap up of the entire series.
I don't want to say anything else about it because part of the joy of these shorts is going into them not knowing what's going to happen and watching as they progressively go deeper down the Rabbit hole through catchy songs and dark imagery.

Oh, and here's a stupid joke I made on my Twitter: twitter.com/Arielrocks5/status/746123109078532097
Deeply unsettling as it takes its time to venture into the realms of psychological regressions, fictional reinventions and levels of meta-reality where the puppets' existence is redefined and reshaped.
This is the kind of experimentation that a series as bizarre and random as this one needs to take; there is not (or more properly said, shouldn't be) a cohesive logic of progression in each installment. Each entry should debunk or challenge the previous ones, and this one does so greatly. Almost on par (in many ways better) than the first one, this is the road of experimental recreation to sustain a crazy realm.
this is why cinema was invented
Cómo cambia las cosas un buen final. Cuando empecé esta serie hace ¿una hora? me pareció bastante poco interesante porque pervertir las series infantiles me parece bastante poco interesante (tampoco hay que emplear tanto tiempo para darte cuenta de que los programas infantiles suelen lidiar con temas mucho más oscuros que los que productos como este quieren que creas) pero me quedé porque me gustan las marionetas y pervertir la estética de anuncio de wallapop (que creo que en aquella época era solo estética de videoclip indie) sí que es algo que me atrae.
Bueno, resulta que Don't Hug Me I'm Scared no es un chiste a costa de Barrio Sésamo, o por lo menos no es solo eso. Es…

Objectively, this is probably the best one in the series. I still think 4's my favorite, because DIGITAL STYLE. But this is objectively the best one.
For starters, it's the most experimental with its puppets. So many old puppets are reused and at same time, many new ones were created for as little as less than second of screen time. There's some great 2D animation in the beginning, too. But the meat of what this episode brings to the series is a sense of what it all means.
More or less, the series slowly shows how studio interference and advertising can corrupt art, while at the same time unveiling the beauty of indie cinema and how artists are able to…
I too have dreams about standing on stage naked singing I like being creative along with burning my friends.
A fitting conclusion to the series as well as one of the best examples of millennial revolutionary artwork I have ever seen.
Amazing conclusion to an amazing mini-series
The most impressive thing about this is how well the creators adapt to the popularity of the first and slowly expand on that without altering a tricky balance of tone and style. The final episode is hit-and-miss, but the way the shorts twist to find the rough edges of the real world that the sing-song simplification of children's entertainment can't account for works very well.
Grand finale, get a bit of Frank vibes.
If all of the previous entries in the saga were one big thesis statement, then this is the essay+conclusion. Completely breaking away from the formula of the previous ones in order to deliver one final note about the manipulative nature of children's television, religion, and the internet. The overarching narrative also finally closes, but doesn't fully answer every question. This leads to soo much leeway with interpretation which I absolutely adore. I take back what I said about part 4 because THIS is easily the most complex of the series. If the first one was so simple and didn't require a lot of thinking, then this one is easily the smartest of them all. I rewatched this one just as…
Unnerving and very well-made. It was a fitting ending, but I'm still excited for the next episodes.
i miss DHMIS :-(
