Brickfilms Wiki

Amphibian Appendages is a 2010 slapstick comedy brickfilm by Jonni Peppers.[1] It is about a chef preparing frog legs for a customer.[2] It was on the shortlist for the cancelled 2010 Bricks in Motion Awards, and it was screened at the BrickFlix Film Festival in 2011.[3]

The film was originally going to be titled Frog Legs, but when Emma Graham released a film with this title, a new title was required. Rob Bauer suggested Amphibious, Peppers expanded this to Amphibian Legs, and Harry Bossert suggested Amphibian Appendages.[4]


In a restaurant, a customer orders the frog legs, and the waiter takes the order to the chef. The chef grabs a frog, but finds that it has no legs. Undeterred, he puts the frog in his pan, and adds a pair of human legs to compensate. He adds many more ingredients to the pan, before cooking the dish with a large machine. The waiter takes the plate of frog legs out to the customer, and the customer chows down.[2]
