Hugo Bumfeldt is the classic story of a boy and his pet — with one surprising twist. In this playful animated short, an adorable alien named Hugo adopts a human being as his cherished companion. While Hugo cares for his tiny human in ways such as building him a rocket ship and giving him a home in a fishbowl, what he doesn’t realize is his pet’s ailing health and homesickness for planet Earth.
