“An adult fantasy film, MEET THE FEEBLES relates the events that lead up to the infamous 'Feebles Variety Massacre' - the day that rocked the puppet world.

“MEET THE FEEBLES was director Peter Jackson's second feature film.  He describes the film as "a kind of Roger Rabbit meets Brazil". Says Jackson, "I decided from the outset to make exactly the sort of puppet film that I would enjoy. It was a challenge to make myself laugh, and since I still chuckle whenever I see MEET THE FEEBLES, I guess I succeeded."
