Family Restaurant

DIRECTOR: Andrea James

When the diner closes up for the night, the salt and pepper shakers, napkin holders, and other inanimate objects inside the restaurant come to life in this whimsical tale about what makes a family. One night, Picky, a curmudgeonly toothpick dispenser, causes a stir when he insists that two ketchup bottles and two mustard bottles can’t fall in love with each other. The next day, with the help of little boy with two dads, he learns a valuable lesson. Kids will get a kick out of the quirky puppetry in this sweet short with an important message.
