Uncle Wormsley is a grey, decaying old man, who dedicates his life to the care of his only friend, a monstrous crab called Crabsley who lives in a dungeon under his house.
Across town lives Johnnie Goodington, a rich boy who has everything money could buy except one thing – a giant monstrous crab.
One Christmas, Johnnie's father strikes a deal with the mysterious and shadowy Crab Catchers. Johnnie shall have his Giant crab, but dark forces have been unleashed, and who can tell where this will end?
The animation is narrated by Steve Coogan, voiced by Julian Barratt, Julia Davis, John Thomson and Ben Baker.
It is written by Joel Veitch and Tim Gallagher and directed by David Shute.
