Tune in to The Nightly News at Nine With Phil and Sherry

As the Digital Underground once told you -- "stop whatcha doing, cause I'm about to ruin, the image and the style that ya used to..."

Your morning productivity? Gone. The next half-hour of your life? Owned. Meeting your first weather dragon? About to happen.

Tubefilter News has a profile and 23-minute video of 'The Nightly News at Nine With Phil and Sherry.' A mock news program, done entirely in animated bricks and minifigures, this show finds the right balance of whimsy and attention to detail. Creator David Pickett -- based out of Chicago -- talks about the painstaking process of stop-motion animation and where the series is right now.

In the world of fake news, this show sneaks into the top 5, which considering The Onion, The Colbert Report, and The Daily Show With Jon Stewart are locks, that's a pretty big accomplishment.
