Keith and Heath Short Film

Andy Young

Why Watch? Do you have a best friend? Probably not as best as Keith’s best friend Heath and Heath’s best friend Keith. These best friends are the best best friends. They’re also twins, and they’re also puppets.

This imaginative short film from Andy Young thrives due to sheer cheekiness, parodic levels of sunshine and a hint of Adult Swim’s DNA. It’s a bowl of sugary children’s cereal spiked with whiskey and set loose on Saturday morning.

Jon Cozart voices the titular stars of Keith and Heath, complete with their signature gag and a manic sense of comic joy that infects the entire cast. A wrench gets thrown into the happy story when the brothers face the difficult choice of living apart from one another, but the bulk of the short film doesn’t worry about plot, using it like a rag doll instead of a storytelling tool.

Instead, it takes the unflappable smiles of children’s programming and exposes them for the creepy absurdity they truly are. And then things get weird.

What Will It Cost? About 8 minutes.
