It is not uncommon to find illegal aliens roaming the streets of Texas, but as far as we can tell, none of them appear to be after our opposing thumbs. – not yet anyway. However, if there ever is an rabid insurgence of green-blooded aliens swooping down from outer space to devour our cattle and rid us of our ability to play with guns, then all we can hope is that a wild-eyed lawman is standing close by with his can of whoop-ass already half opened.

‘Thumb Snatchers from the Moon Cocoon’ is an animated short film created by Bradley Schaffer and Ashley Arechiga, in which the pistol packing Texas Sheriff Huckiss goes on a full-blown butt-kicking crusade to save the Lone Stare state from the wrath of disgruntled aliens on a mission to strip Texans of their destructive opposing thumbs.

Spoiler Alert: Don't mess with Huckiss.
