Their journey through the afterlife begins at a hot spring known as the station 'purifying' and includes a pit stop at a rainbow-colored carnival. A trippy sequence sees Whizzy glimpse the vastness of the universe at the bottom of a scintillating well; a time lapse of changing seasons is like data Fantastic Mr Fox meets the The Tree of Life .

Anxious Whitebelly's matted fur is rendered with detail and detail.exquisite ins, while an ultralight pink catwalk appears to have been constructed from strawberry meringue.
