Gustafer YellowGold and his sock-loving pet eel, Slim, star in this fun DVD/CD combo set. Infinity Sock is the story of Gustafer settling into his new house in Minnesota, a far cry from his old home, the sun…discovering that his pet eel, Slim, loves to take all his socks. Gustafer goes on a wacky hunt for the toe-end of the longest sock in the world – the “infinity sock.” Watch Gustafer and Slim through their wacky adventures and zany mishaps, and sing along with some catchy tunes that will make the kids giggle, and mom and dad feel a little bit reminiscent of The Beatles.
When I first saw the press release for this DVD/CD, it mentioned this being a “The Beatles meet Dr. Seuss” and I think that’s the best way to describe this animated video and the music that goes along with it. Quirky and fun, and not just for kids.
In Gustafer Yellowgold’s Infinity Sock, we find former Sun-dweller Gustafer Yellowgold settling into his new Minnesota woodland home, finally beginning to understand what a strange and peculiar planet he landed upon! The story follows Gustafer, who begins an ordinary day by washing his pet eel’s laundry but soon embarks upon an hilarious, mind-bending musical journey in search of the toe-end of the longest sock in the universe. Gustafer learns much along the way, as he encounters a Band of Bees performing at their late night hangout in the chime-and-timpani drama of ”Beehive,” joins in the Broadway romp “Wisconsin Poncho” (set in an all-cheese clothing store), and comes upon the pterodactyl’s unusually calm cat in the Fleetwood Mac lushness of “Cheddar,” all the while discovering that everyone has a use for The Sock. In an artful balance of poignancy and the absurd, Gustafer ponders his own curiosity in “Question Marks” (a tune in the classic folk tradition) and enjoys a fun, one-of-a-kind look at the interconnectivity among all life on Earth in the uplifting, Bacharach-esque “Sock Of Ages.”
You can listen to a few clips of music from Gustafer Yellowgold’s adventures!! Gustafer Yellowgold’s Infinity Sock will be available online at http://www.gustaferyellowgold.com/ and amazon.com, as well as at retailers nationwide.
