If you were trying to win my affections I’d say a good bet would be to approach me with a bouquet of little plush Tsum Tsum and lots, and lots of cupcakes. That’s why Disney’s live-action documentary style series Tsum Tsum Kingdom has my heart—the newest episode features all of that and more!
The Tsum Tsum are back for more adventures. This time around, the stakes are even higher because snacks are involved. Like most office parties, desks are littered with crinkled gift wrap, pizza boxes, and, if you’re lucky, a leftover dessert.
Our little tsum tribes go to war over the last pink vanilla cupcake. Can you blame them? Sweets are serious business. The video really hits its stride when that sloth rolls in—in other words, I lost it. There’s nothing more entertaining than a sloth, real or tsum tsum.
The road to cupcakes leads to a Mad Max-style fight scene but as usual, in the end it doesn’t quite turn out as planned. However, it definitely made me hungry for cupcakes.
If you’re wondering how all these little tsums come to life, Nerdist has the exclusive. Take a look at an amazing behind-the-scenes video that shows just how they get the plush to walk and wiggle and how they animate them just so to react with fun facial features. It’s a whole lot of cool movie magic… though perhaps I should label this with a “spoiler alert,” just in case you thought those tsums were acting for real.
You can catch the third episode of Tsum Tsum Kingdom, Thursday, September 22 on the Disney YouTube channel.
