Psychedelic Lunchbox is an animated anthology series stuffed with elements of dark humor, sci-fi, fantasy, surrealism and absurdism depicting slice of life moments that explore such topics as loneliness, parenting, beliefs and the horrors of work. Each episode begins with someone opening their lunchbox to reveal a variety of food items nestled among a field of mushrooms, woodland creatures and other psychedelic scenery that varies every time. To introduce each episode a mysterious hand sifts through these items and picks up something specific to that show’s story. This can be an item, a character, a piece of scenery, or even a character’s thoughts or feelings. Each episode of Psychedelic Lunchbox will have a running time of 5 to 12 minutes and can be thought of as a blend of Tales From The Loop and The Shivering Truth with a dash of Welcome To Night Vale.
After her roommates explode from blasting the happiness too high a college woman is left unable to pay the bill. When the happiness company shuts off her utilities she resorts to ancient rituals for acquiring true happiness only to learn she’s violated the terms and conditions of life.
