Professor Pebbles


They say your 500th birthday is always the hardest. Professor Pebbles had hoped for a much more important role to play in hell than teaching basic evil to bored school kids. Is it his fault that he's a nice guy?

Tired of being taunted as a goody two-shoes, our antihero ascends to the surface of a damned earth, determined to unleash some serious wrongdoing on those annoyingly innocent humans, and maybe pick up some spring rolls while he's at it. Judgement day is looming, and the fate of the world rests in one demon's red right hand.

After today, nobody's ever going to laugh at Professor Pebbles again.


Directed by Pierce Davison

With the Voices of Shaun Micallef, David Smyth, John Safran, James Magnus, Xavier Michelides, Brendan Slattery, Shannon Spicer and Charles ‘Bud’ Tingwell
