Synopsis

Cowboy and Indian study hard for their exam, which they pass with flying colours because Horse has promised them a brilliant reward: Tickets for the big county fair! But as Horse is leaving the room to fetch the tickets, he slips on a skateboard and bangs his head on the floor. There is only one thing for it: off to hospital he goes. Cowboy and Indian go with him and soon realise to their horror that he has lost his memory. Where did he hide the tickets? There is no question of the lovable duo giving up their chance of going to the fair. So a race against time begins as they strive to find the cherished tickets before it is too late...

Benshi's review

It is a real joy to meet up again with Cowboy, Indian and Horse! After a series, a feature film and two 26-minute shorts, our heroes return for more adventures - and what great adventures they are! All the ingredients that made A Town Called Panic a success are to the fore again as we are invited to enjoy another cinematic treat. With stop-motion animation and plasterboard sets, nutty and eccentric characters, visual delights and absurd humour, the directors, Vincent Patar and Stéphane Aubier, deliver another thrilling demonstration of their creativity. The result is plenty more fun with our favourite pair of figurines. The adventure includes: travels through time, a farm theme park and countless crazy ideas from the minds of Cowboy and Indian… Yet the story begins in the opposite way to what we have come to expect from Cowboy and Indian. This time we join the usually gaffe-prone duo after they have emphatically passed their exams and displayed exemplary behaviour. They have earned the prize that Horse had promised them: tickets to the county fair! But since Horse has lost his memory, there is no way for them to know where he hid the tickets... Thanks to Indian's hurriedly-concocted invention involving a washing machine, our heroes travel back in time to pick up the tickets. Thus we enter the realm of the absurd, where comedy is king! By bending time Cowboy and Indian wind up meeting versions of themselves from different space-time warps. And Horse unintentionally gets mixed up in the carry-on too! As ever, Cowboy and Indian wreak havoc, hatch countless hare-brained schemes and take the story in the most unlikely directions. The County Fair represents another success in the A Town Called Panic saga. More please!
