Director's Comments

This is the story of a man and his very old oven...once upon a midnight dreary. It's a loose parody of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven."

Winner of 1st place in the 2008 NickToons Animation Contest.

Staff Review

Jordan Harris:
The Oven is an amazing film. While the technical aspects are well-done, Smeagol's execution of a simple, brilliant concept centered around a narrated poem is what makes this stand out. With fantastic pacing and great humor, this is a film you don't want to miss.
