Poisonberry Pete is an outlaw in a town whose residents are all pies, and when he storms into a saloon looking for, ahem, dough, it's just one of a number of baked goods-themed gags in this flaky fun short film.

The Ballad of Poisonberry Pete was made by Uri Lotan, Adam Campbell, and Elizabeth McMahill as a thesis film at Ringling College of Art and Design. And we're assured that, yes, pies were harmed in the making of this film. You've got to get that filling splatter just right.
