Poop, Spring and the Others: Meatballs and Dumplings

Meatballs live in their box in the refrigerator, and anything outside of that is forbidden and terrifying. In their opinion, the main threat in the outside world are mythical dumplings that no one has ever seen. But it just so happens that the two meatballs embark on an adventurous voyage of discovery outside the box. By the end of the journey, the world has changed not only for them, but also for all the other meatballs living in the box. And even better.
