If I Had a Hammer

Writer/Producer/Director: Andy Bean

Tremble mortals! Thor, the mighty God of Thunder, has lost his hammer and embarks on his quest for a new one… at the local hardware store.

Set in a shop whose proud boast is “we won’t be beaten on price—just quality and service”, If I Had a Hammer is a gleefully violent cartoon where the gags come as thick and fast as the bloodletting. It is here that Thor encounters Mud, a pimple-faced store assistant, and endures levels of customer service ill-fitting a Thunder God. It is not long before the short-tempered deity goes postal and what was once a busy hardware store is transformed into a blood-splattered war-zone.
