    Fanboy and his sidekick Chum Chum battle a frozen drink ice monster in their local convenience store. “Fanboy” successfully translates the creative vision of Eric Robles’ unique 2D character designs into CG animation. The characters’ exaggerated expressions and comedic acting as well as the film’s lighting and textures are especially notable in creating this feature-quality look on a TV budget.
