Plot Synopsis

From the creators of ROBOT CHICKEN, this half-hour, stop-motion animated series uses baby dolls repurposed as a grown-up cast of characters to tell the story of an investigation into the mysterious disappearance of Carpenter K. Smith, the most famous magnate in the fictional metropolis of Ultra City. Two intrepid detectives -- Detective Gail Johnson and David Mills -- follow the case, rallying to fight against their city's dangerous corruption, at a high cost to themselves and their families, all in pursuit of a gentler place to call home.
