Another version of the Mewlips from the Tolkien poem of the same name. These puppets and the miniature set was created for this film version of that poem:

In this image the mewlips are dividing their ill-gotten loot amongst each other. The guy who can count is king here.

Two things in the video rang bells.
About 0:30, a wall of human skulls - from the Paris catacombs.
Some point later: Mudskippers, actual amphibious territorial fish that are fun to watch.

Considering the rotten landscape beyond the Merlock Mountains, one wonders why anybody would go looking for the Mewlips. "You go to find the Mewlips ,and the Mewlips ... feed."

From one of my favorite Tolkein books.

Hah! It was a fun short film, showing that Tolkien and Edward Gorey could sometimes be on the same page. :) (Smile)  The mewlips hanging out here waiting for supper to ring the door-bell was macabre humor done well.
