A series of 5-minute line animations (drawn in the rough style and with the minimalist plots of David Lynch’s The Angriest Dog in the World comic strip) featuring an angry and violent Neanderthal, and his family and neighbors.

Possibly Lynch's most grotesque view of the American heartland. It is as if, with the birth of digital, he went back to art school, cranking out a web series of crude cartoons that, when they signify (and they don't always), are actually pretty funny and mordant. Thank god the episodes are only 4 minutes; I couldn't take much more stick figure farts and puke. Hey, I didn't say it was his best—just his most grotesque.
This is actually pretty fucking hilarious. So dumb, yet I couldn't look away. Someone in Youtube said this feels like Lynch is trying to say something about the American family cartoons, and it makes sense. Or maybe something about white trash? Or crazy modern life in general? I don't know, but I watched this in the middle of the night and I had fun.
I always thought that DUMBLAND is a satirical view to American people but in David Lynch way of course. My favorite is episode 5 - when Randy tried to remove a stick from a man's mouth. Instead of cutting it, Randy tried so hard to unplug it with his bare hands. Is this mean that sometimes people do something without thinking about it first? I really don't know. Only God & David Lynch know what it really mean...
