Klay World: Off the Table is a 2005 American claymation comedy film. The film was directed by Robert Benfer, and stars Benfer, Sammie Penrod, Jason Steele, Tyler Vandenbergh, Tom Fulp, Randy Solem, and Nikki Benfer. the movie recived positive reviews
Chip Brown, an intelligent blue klayman with a chunk missing from his head, briefly travels back into the distant past with his uncle Dr. Brown, a renowned scientist that allegedly invented time travel who travels through time with a tin foil "Time Hat", along with his friend Rick the Prick, a delinquent, green beany wearing blue klayman who's face is covered with so many piercings that it causes him to have mushmouth.
Upon their arrival to the distant past, the trio see two primitive blue klaymen dressed in orange, tattered togas where one is beating up on the other with a club and both are insulting one another by calling each other "Nanner". In an attempt to end the fight, Dr. Brown intervenes and attempts to introduce himself. However, the antagonistic kaveman continues to passively abuse the other kaveman with his club despite Dr. Brown's efforts. Disgusted by their behavior, Dr. Brown scolds the antagonistic kaveman & travels forward in time to the present with Chip and Rick in tow. After their departure, the victim kaveman pulls out a cattle prod from behind him and uses it to shock and kill the antagonistic kaveman, setting the tone of intelligence overcoming brutal oppression in the film.
Upon their arrival to the present time, Chip confronts Dr. Brown on the fact that all of his accomplishments are outshined by his uncle's time machine and that no one acknowledges him because of it, however, it immediately becomes apparent how indifferent Dr. Brown is to Chip's distress when he's unresponsive and walks off into the distance while Chip is in midsentence. With Dr. Brown having departed from their presence, Chip, jealous of his uncle's success and popularity, proclaims to Rick that "You and me are gonna make it big someday".
While trying to figure out ways to become big, Chip and Rick are confronted by Vince, an elderly blue klay man with a long white beard who professes himself as a carpenter. Vince proclaims that he doesn't approve of Chip and Rick's current activities despite the fact they aren't doing anything. When told they aren't doing anything, Vince responds with "I don't care", points to a "bed" he made and brags about his craftsmanship. When Chip points out the flaws in Vince's bed, Vince destroys it by accident while trying to defend it from criticism. In the midst of trying to reassemble the bed, Vince falls asleep onto the pile of broken wood where he proclaims "I hate pine." for the first time, a phrase that quickly becomes a reoccuring trend with the character.
Chip then focuses his attention back on talking to Rick where he proclaims "It's just another day in Klay World", a statement which he himself brings into question by asking why it's called "Klay World" when their inhabitance of the actual world is limited to the table, foreshadowing the events that follow.
Chip and Rick then discover that a large crowd of blue klay people have gathered together to hear an announcement from Dr. Bob about a klayman who was contacted, through a pink radio radio, by "another species of klay people which finally proves that there is life outside of this house". During this announcement, Dr. Bob witnesses a klayman in the front of the crowd suffering from a heart attack as he proclaims "I'm dying!", a proclamation of which Dr. Bob ignores until the man eventually dies. After resuming his speech, Dr. Bob then invites political official Mr. Black, a blue klayman wearing a red tie with a yellow dots who's allegedly the smartest klayman in Klay World, to speak at the podium to continue the announcement, during which he interviews the owner of the pink radio, Smiling Gary and reveals his plan to assemble a crew, build a machine for transportation and pursue the aliens from outside the house.
It is after the assembly had disbanded that it's revealed that Rick the Prick had stolen a screw from the past as he brags about what he stole to Chip. Chip responds in anger, takes the screw and throws it behind him into another blue klayman's face all the while stating that Rick put the space time continuity at risk by doing so.
When Chip suggests that they should attempt at being part of Mr. Black's crew, they suddenly hear noise coming from the pink radio that was on display during the assembly, among the static and nonsense, they hear someone say "Hello" which is then followed by garbled ranting.
Believing that this is the opportunity for the fame and glory he's been waiting for, Chip pursues Mr. Black a couple of days after the assembly to request a spot in the crew arguing that since he and Rick, like Smiling Gary, heard a transmission from the radio that they should be entitled to accompany the group on the journey. However, Mr. Black refuses on the grounds that the crew had already been assembled and consists of himself, Dr. Bob, Smiling Gary and a hyperactive klayman named Pick. He further justifies rejecting Chip by explaining that Gary is only involved because "if it weren't for him, we wouldn't even be on this mission".
After Chip engages in an emotional breakdown, Dr. Bob asks why it's so important for him to be a part of the crew to which Chip responds by revealing that he feels overshadowed by Dr. Brown's one accomplishment in discovering time travel. Mr. Black then refutes Chip's claim by stating that Dr. Brown is a fraud, that he himself invented time travel and the Time Hat was stolen from him by Dr. Brown. Mr. Black then proclaims that if he ever found Dr. Brown that he'd kill him and tells Chip that if he tells him where Dr. Brown is that he'd kill him for Chip. However, still wanting the glory and fame of being among the group to make first contact with alien life, Chip uses Dr. Brown's whereabouts as a bargaining chip to worm his way into the crew.
At first the six blue klaymen attempt at building a vehicle on their own but due to their incompetence and lack of supplies they end up buying one off the internet and pass it off as their own creation. Another assembly is held during the reveal of the RC truck and after they dodge some scrutiny from the crowd by murdering the critics, Mr. Black announces that he, Pick, Smiling Gary and Chip will be the ones leaving while Dr. Bob will remain behind to stay in touch with them at the table.
When Rick's name is not mentioned during the announcement, Rick brings it into question and is told by Mr. Black that there are only four seats to the RC truck and he's not to come with. Rick brings this to the attention of Chip to which responds by denying having known anything about it previously, to which Rick responds by criticizing Chip's integrity in not defending him during the announcement. Chip remains evasive in giving Rick a proper explanation and uses Mr. Black's impatience to his advantage as Black repeatedly yells at him to get in the RC truck. Feeling betrayed, Rick is the first to leave the argument.
As the four klaymen prepare to leave they're fed praise by one blue klayman & reminded by a another in assembly to come back with the aliens. As crew depart, Dr. Bob gives his condolences to Rick but reminds him of the dangers of venturing out into the unknown by stating "the chances of them coming back alive are not very good" & "them leaving this table has to be the worst idea in the history of bad ideas, trust me". Dr. Bob makes a suggestion of how Rick should vent his emotions by demonstrating how he himself vents his anger by taking a fire ax and throwing it at another blue klayman's head which, surprisingly, does not kill the klayman upon impact. This suggestion leads to Rick developing destructive tendencies, especially when confronted in dealing with Chip.
As the crew attempt to leave the house, they are faced with difficulties operating the RC truck as they have never tried operating it before, this is especially apparent whenever Mr. Black is the one driving. They are then stumped when they find themselves at the front door of the house and unable to open it, despite how much they plead with it to open on its own.
Marv, a blue klayman that wears a yellow cap, has a brown mustache and sports a utility belt with a flashlight buckled onto it, informs Dr. Bob about the radio tower he and the No-Armed Guy from the "Help I'm Stuck!" Klay World short had built. He informs Dr. Bob that it's meant to provide a signal boost for a pair of walkie talkies, one already in the possession of the crew and the other in their possession, that will allow them to give directions to the crew by observing a world globe on the table whenever they're lost. However, as it turns out, their walkie talkie doesn't receive a signal at all. Much to Dr. Bob's dismay, he proclaims that the situation was a waste of time and that "I'm gonna go draw a picture of all the things I've could've been doing with the five minutes that I wasted on that... on all that planning. Five minutes of planning down the drain!"
With the front door to the house finally open, the crew can now exit the house to begin their pursuit in finding and retrieving the aliens. Before they exit the house, they prop up their Klay World flag on the RC truck using a pencil as the flagpole with transparent thumbtacks keeping the flag suspended from the makeshift flagpole, this the only accessory to the truck they themselves had made. When Mr. Black drives the RC truck out of the house, it becomes apparent how squirrelly the truck is as Mr. Black loses so much control that Gary falls out when he drives the RC car onto the sidewalk by accident, all the while he panics & proclaims "I dunno what I'm doin'! I dunno what I'm doin'!" They then have to go back and retrieve Gary offscreen.
Meanwhile, Marv begins lamenting the fact that the mission is even happening and expresses that he expects the aliens to find them laughable and stupid. Chester the Long Armed guy approaches the No-Armed Guy and asks him how he was able to get the car to fly, to which the No-Armed Guy responds by telling him that the car doesn't fly at all. This is followed by Chester wreaking havoc on everyone around him by yelling "Gimme a high five!" and hitting other klay people across the table.
A good portion of the mission is spent exploring the outside world on foot with Smiling Gary being used as a canary in a coal mine. It is here that Mr. Black questions Smiling Gary on what the aliens are even like and what language they speak to which Smiling Gary can only give vague answers. This dialog is interrupted however when Pick decides to start chewing on a stick he found on the sidewalk, this action catches the attention of Mr. Black and prompts him to start physically abusing Pick.
At the table, Nick Mcinzee, a blue klaywoman working as a reporter for KW news, interviews Dr. Bob and asks questions regarding the mission and the radio tower such as "What is that big thing you have behind you?" & "How you feeling right now Dr. Bob?"
Meanwhile, Chip discovers the walkie talkie in the truck and questions Mr. Black on why it doesn't work, to which Mr. Black responds by telling him "Don't worry about it. Just leave it alone." Chip further questions why they even have it if it doesn't work. Mr. Black responds by telling him that it should work despite the fact it doesn't and that leaving alone is for the best. Smiling Gary sides with Chip by bringing into question whether or not they may happen upon a circumstance where they need help or reinforcements. Mr. Black retaliates by saying "Oh God, the first thought you have and it's against me."
During Dr. Bob's interview, a random blue klayman in the crowd surrounding him has a heart attack. Mcinzee challenges Dr. Bob to treat the klayman for his heart attack, probably knowing about the last time he let someone die of a heart attack, a challenge of which he meets by stepping on the klayman's head and crushing his skull, killing him instantly. Both Mcinzee and the crowd turn on him and throw accusations of personal harm his way.
Dr. Bob finds Vince, whom of which he apparently shares personal history with as Vince is one of the oldest, longest lasting klaymen in Klay World and requests his help in convincing the public that he is not a bad doctor. Vince, on the fence in his opinion over Dr. Bob's competence as a doctor, shows indifference to the situation. Dr. Bob then tries to bribe Vince by stating he's brought him pine wood, a proclamation that angers Vince as he begins shouting "I hate pine!"
Backed into a corner, Dr. Bob shouts "You guys are insulting a good doctor!" to which Vince replies "No I'm not, you're insulting me!" Mcinzee then approaches Dr. Bob a final time only to be punched off the table where it is presumed she falls to her death.
Back in the outside world, the crew are driving through the rain up until they collide with a pile of rubble, here it is revealed that Mr. Black is the blind leading the blind, aimlessly driving wherever his impulses take him without any real plan or forethought. This becomes apparent to Chip when Mr. Black hands his "Master plans", written on a single sheet of paper, to Chip and the details laid out on the paper turn out to be nothing more than a single squiggly line. When the group resumes their adventure Chip questions Mr. Black on whether or not he knows where the aliens are, to which Mr. Black answers with the evasive non-answer "Don't talk to me while I'm driving." Chip then directly questions "Do you even know what you're doing?!", a question of which Mr. Black cannot simply avoid, this prompts him to say a simple "Nope."
Chip then demands that Mr. Black stop the car. Chip exits the RC truck and distances himself from Mr. Black by sitting on a shovel and here it is revealed that Mr. Black wasn't aware of how expansive the world really is and that his arrogant attitude was an attempt to hide his uncertainty. Mr. Black attempts to apologize to Chip for misguiding him and tries to justify his actions with "I don't think any of us knew that this place was gonna be so big! Sorry, I'm not a magician."
Chip begins insulting Mr. Black by attacking his gender when Mr. Black further justifies himself by stating "Men make mistakes." This insult is enough to prompt Mr. Black into entering the RC truck while proclaiming that he's going to run down Chip with the truck and kill him. Mr. Black turns on the truck and starts driving it into Chip's direction with Pick stuck on the hood of the truck. Mr. Black successfully charges the truck into the shovel Chip was sitting on but not before Chip was able to dodge the truck. With the shovel acting as a ramp for the RC truck, the truck flies into the air and tumbles down a concrete ditch causing it to sustain substantial damage and in turn, destroy Mr. Black's body.
Chip goes to investigate the wreckage to discover Mr. Black laying on the ground next to the flipped RC truck. It is revealed here that Mr. Black blames his current condition on Chip and his uncle. Before dying, Mr. Black makes the final request that "I want you to go back to the house, get the time machine from your uncle and I want you to go back in time and stop all of this from ever happening!"
Pick, much to Chip's surprise, is still alive. Battered and dirty, Pick stumbles upon the wreckage to find Mr. Black's lifeless body and screams in terror. Following Pick is Smiling Gary from atop the hill who starts screaming in unison with Pick thinking he'd fit in. This is followed by Mr. Black's body violently convulsing on the ground.
Meanwhile, the klaymen back at the table have undertaken the necessary steps to fix the problems with the signal booster by making a larger antenna for it with the No-Armed Guy as a volunteer.
The next morning, Chip wakes up to Smiling Gary driving the RC truck and ramming it into a support beam at the underpass of a highway bridge. This causes Chip to fall out and get run over by Smiling Gary by accident, fulfilling Mr. Black's dying objective of hitting Chip with the RC truck. Chip then promptly kicks Gary out of the driver's seat and starts driving the RC truck himself. He informs Smiling Gary of their new objective to retrieve the time hat from Dr. Brown and undo the events that led up to Mr. Black's death.
In the attempt to return to the table, Chip attempts to drive the RC truck back up the concrete ditch where the truck was formally wrecked. However, the truck struggles as it traverses up the concrete hill and continually roles back down. Resigned to finding a way around the hill, Chip starts exploring other paths.
The antenna is finally completed by the No-Armed Guy which allows Marv to contact the crew. Marv arranges for an assembly when he gets in touch with Chip and here it's revealed to the inhabitants of Klay World that not only is Mr. Black dead but the group had decided to return to the table instead of maintaining the pursuit of the aliens. Marv tosses the walkie talkie at Rick's feet as he's attending the assembly, to which he responds by crushing the walkie talkie underfoot. When Chip loses the signal from the other klay people, Gary asks what happened to which Chip responds "I dunno but we've got a lot of asses to kick when we get back to the table, that's all I know."
The inhabitants of Klay World have assumed that Klay World has returned to normal and begin celebrating. That is until they start hearing banging noises coming from the door of the room they're in. The door swings open and not but a few moments later, monstrous peach colored klay people armed with green laser guns emerge from underneath the table. The blue klay people instantly recognize the peach people as the aliens they've been trying to track down. The leader, who introduces himself as King Womp, makes the comment "Wow, we've got a lot of stuff to improve here".
King Womp reveals that he and his crew travel from Klay World to Klay World searching out new klay people and that they do it on foot to avoid attracting the attention of humans. Whenever they find a new klay society, they allegedly incorporate them into their own Klay World for the sake of diplomatic relations. However, based upon the brief time he's had to interact with the blue klay people, he's decided that establishing diplomatic relations with them would be a waste of time and that they'd be better off modifying them into their own image to increase their intelligence, obedience and physical capabilities. They then initiate a full scale massacre on the blue klaymen. Despite their usual stupidity, the klaymen immediately realize that they are in danger and start running from the gunfire to which the Tongue alien remarks "Why do they always have to do it this way!?" implying that this isn't the first time that King Womp has decided to murder other Klaymen and rebuild them into something better.
Most of the Klayworld citizens escape the massacre by climbing down the table, including Dr. Bob, Rick the Prick and the surviving klayman from the 2004 "Made The Ending" Klay World short. When the three of them hide underneath a pair of blue jeans, the "Made The Ending" klayman, naturally, gives away their position to King Womp as he's patrolling the ground and causes Rick to get captured by him.
Chip drives the RC truck up a hill through a field of grass only to end up on a busy highway where Chip panics and struggles to control the RC truck which results in Smiling Gary falling out of the car once more and getting crushed under the tire of a car. In a desperate gamble to escape the flow of traffic, Chip drives off the road and ends up on a train track where he is unable to drive the truck back over the metal railings.
Unaware of what the train tracks are meant for, Chip foolishly reassures himself and Pick that they should be safe. However, when they hear a train blowing its whistle and see it barrel around the corner, Chip desperately tries to drive the truck off the tracks to no avail. He then resorts to abandoning the RC truck entirely. Pick refuses to listen to Chip's plea to get out of the truck and climb over the railings and tucks his face into his hands to hide his eyes. The truck is hit by the train and Pick is presumed dead, leaving Chip with no companions and no transport.
Meanwhile at the table, Dr. Bob and the other klay man run into the remaining klay men who escaped the wrath of the peach klay people. Among them are Chester the Long Armed guy, Vince and the klayman with the ax protruding from his face. The one from the "Made The Ending" short witnesses a stray klayman that narrowly escapes down to the ground only to be attacked by Wagon and suggests to Dr. Bob that they should leave the house and find a new place to live.
Dr. Bob concurs with the idea. However, the idea does not go unchallenged as a generic blue klayman suggests that Klay World is their home and they should stand their ground against the threat. The idea is echoed by Vince who rambles on, referencing Brave Heart, quoting the Bonnie Tyler song "I Need A Hero" and so on. Feeling he has no choice in the matter, Dr. Bob caves into peer pressure and agrees with the notion of forming a counter attack on the peach aliens.
Meanwhile, King Womp asks the brainy alien about the progress of the invasion. The brainy alien informs him that although they managed to kill a few of the klaymen, the rest panicked and decided to flee off the table. After a Klayworld citizen asks him not to kill him (and he shoots him in the face), he and the twin aliens decide to search for the survivors.
However, as one of the twin aliens begins searching for the klaymen, they set up a Guerrilla style ambush and steal its laser pistol after ripping it apart, limb from limb. From there they set up another ambush on the table, one of the blue klaymen attempts to communicate with another unit with a spare set of walkie talkies only to have his plan to shoot them from behind be overheard by Brainy. Brainy shoots at the blue klayman only for the blue klayman to dodge and fire back hitting the other Twin Alien in the head.
He begins celebrating his apparent victory, giving Brainy the opportunity to kill him by shooting him in the head. Brainy then expresses pity on the blue klayman by stating "Huh... he tried so hard..." Suddenly, another klayman before getting brained with a pencil lunged at him from above. In his dying moments, Brainy belows out a delayed cry of pain that can be heard all throughout the room as King Womp takes immediate notice.
The remaining Klaymen, which involves Chester, Vince, Dr. Bob and the klayman with an ax protruding from his face, gather around and prepare to gang up on the Tongue alien. The Tongue alien asks them "You don't actually think you'll win do you?" to which Dr. Bob responds by stating they have no choice but to fight back. Upon realizing that the Klaymen are resisting him, he decides to appeal to the Klaymen by making the argument that although they don't have a reason to exist, he can give them a reason to exist.
A blue klayman refutes his point by stating that it'd only be under his control that their purpose for living would be sufficient in his eyes. The focal point of the rebuttal is when the blue klayman states "We deserve to have a mind of our own!" King Womp refutes his counterargument by stating "A mind of your own? I don't think you even have that." a statement of which he makes as Freddy grabs the klayman and begins killing him.
However, the other unit stationed by the TV take the confrontation to their advantage as they attack Wagon by lunging a toothpick through his chest. A string is attached to this toothpick and the other end is tied around a VHS tape ejected from the Toshiba TV/VCR hybrid. The klayman responsible for Wagon's injury ziplines down the string with a metal key and smacks against Wagon's back causing him to flip over to Wagon's front. Wagon attempts to kill the Klayman but is restrained by the string. He eventually pulls out the VHS tape from the TV/VCR hybrid holding him back, only to have it slam into him, knock him off the table and crush him as both descend to the floor below.
As the klayman responsible for Wagon's death, the klayman from "Made The Ending", celebrates his victory, King Womp, shocked at the death of his followers, questions "How... am I losing to this?" and decides to take direct action by pursuing the klayman that killed Wagon. The klayman grabs the pencil from Brainy's corpse and attempts to brandish it at King Womp only to have it broken in half by one of King Womp's tentacles.
Meanwhile, the remaining klaymen on the table, with the exception of the one with the ax in his face, try ganging up on Freddy, the strongest among King Womp's subordinates. Despite their efforts, Freddy is able to beat them all back across the table with minimum effort, who lets out a triumphant chuckle. However, he fails to notice Chester approaching him with a coffee mug, who remarks that Freddy could use a drink. Freddy looks at Chester before the coffee mug crushes him and slices off his arms.
The remaining klaymen recover from the fight with Freddy save for Vince who cheers them on as he collapses on the ground. The klayman from the "Made The Ending" short managed to get as far as a shelf behind the table before being fully captured by King Womp. The other klaymen demand that King Womp drop him to which he responds by throwing him at the crowd of klaymen.
The Tongue alien attempts to kill Dr. Bob by slinging his tongue over Dr. Bob's head to no avail. Dr. Bob easily repels the Tongue alien into King Womp's direction. King Womp kills the Tongue alien for his incompetence by throwing him against the wall above the bed in the room. Presumably he intends to remodel him into a more competent version of his former self after Klay World is fully conquered.
King Womp stomps his way through the remaining klaymen, cutting into Dr. Bob's face and chest before tossing him aside, cutting into the back of the klayman with the ax protruding from his face, slamming Chester and a recently recovered Vince into each other momentarily knocking the two out and ripping the last klayman in half horizontally. After killing Vince, he then starts gathering the remains of the blue klaymen he and his subordinates had killed, proclaims he'll come back for the survivors later and takes the pile with him beneath the table to form a new subordinate from the cadavers.
Chip, having walked on foot for hours, manages to find his way to klayworld just as he's giving up on life. Upon entering the room where the table is located, he discovers the corpses of the Twin Alien and Wagon on the floor. Much to his horror, Chip notices King Womp scurrying away behind a box and proceeds to retreat to the surface of the table to gain an explanation. Upon his arrival, Chip has found that the three remnants of the battle have become delusional. Barely able to get an explanation out of Dr. Bob, Chip learns of the alien invasion and that the peach people sought to kill them all.
Upon hearing this news, Dr. Brown returns to the current time period with a modified version of the time hat to find that Chip is completely aware of his secret. Out of guilt, Dr. Brown proclaims "I wanna cook my face!" and agrees to return to the point where he stole the time hat and help undo all the events leading up to this point. However, before Dr. Brown and Chip can travel back to the period in which Dr. Brown stole the time hat from Mr. Black, a long appendage whips it's way onto the surface of the table and up climbs King Womp's new subordinate.
This new subordinate forms a blade out of it's right arm, whips it across the table and decapitates Dr. Brown causing the time hat to land onto the roof of the Toshiba TV/VCR hybrid. When Chip tries to address the new subordinate, it punches him into the radio tower. Chip then apologizes to Womp's blue subordinate with "I'm sorry... Rick... I'm really sorry."
It is then revealed that Rick's mind and image was used for the final product of the new subordinate. Now equipped with the ultimate in body modifications, Rick has become completely loyal to King Womp. Chip demands an explanation from the three remaining klaymen to which Dr. Bob explains that the peach people had always intended to cut the klaymen apart and use said parts to create better blue klaymen in their image and Rick has become the product of such a process. It's further explained to Chip that when klay people get rebuilt they develop different personalities from before.
Rick proclaims that, while it was sad that the peach people began killing everyone, the benefit outweighs the cost and that they could all be what he's become but in order to do that he has to kill the remaining few klaymen to make it happen. He starts his attack on Chip by dragging him over to himself and headbutting him. Chester then runs up to Rick and starts punching in a counterclockwise spin, effectively knocking him to the ground. However, this is not enough as Rick kicks Chester away from himself, extends his legs to reach to the same height as the computer, walks over to a helpless chester and stomps his head into the ground through the rest of his body. With only three klaymen left, Chester focuses his attention on Dr. Bob. Dr. Bob begins pleading for his laugh much to the delight of Rick. However, Chip has climbed up the radio tower and jumps onto Rick causing them both to fall to the surface of the table, causing Rick ro retract his legs to their default length.
As both struggle to get up from the fall, Rick extends his leg to kick Chip back to the ground. He continues kicking Chip until he himself finally gets up onto his feet and proceeds to try and punch at Chip. When chip dodges the attack, Rick continues extending his arm out, forms a dagger from the tip of his hand and plunges it at Chip. However, Chip dodges the attack once more causing Rick to drive his arm into an electrical outlet on the radio tower. He receives a brutal shock and is forced to return his arm to it's default length.
In retaliation, Chip struggles to imitate Rick's ability to extend the length of his limbs and punch him off the table. However, in the meantime Rick has decided to form fingers out of his left arm, a feature desired among most blue klay people. As Rick is admiring his own ability to change his anatomy, Chip manages to successfully pull of the ability of extending his limbs and punches Rick off the table, presumably to his death.
Chip then sets his sights on retrieving the time machine and preventing the invasion from ever occuring. However, the war is not won as King Womp can be heard complaining about having to get his hands dirty and having to deal with the remaining blue klaymen himself. Chip hastily asks who it is that's speaking to which Dr. Bob responds by telling Chip to reclaim the time machine before he gets killed.
However, it is too late as during their argument King Womp had already climbed his way to the surface of the table. Upon seeing King Womp, Chip quickly climbs up the radio tower and attempts to climb his way up the Toshiba TV/VCR hybrid. However, King Womp has caught up to him and has grabbed him with one of his tentacles. Upon seeing this, Dr. Bob quickly grabs the ax from the other blue klayman effectively killing him in the process. He then takes a leap of faith and throws the ax into King Womp's back.
King Womp falls to the ground and crashes into the radio equipment. Because of this, the antenna from the radio tower comes loose from the radio tower and smacks into the light bulb of the lamp in the room causing electricity to flow into King Womp causing his body and the radio equipment to explode into vapor.
Believing the ordeal is over, Chip manages his way up to the top of the TV/VCR and attempts to grab the time hat only to have it snatched from him by Rick. Having survived the fall from the table, Rick has resolved to traveling back in time to ensure the defeat of the blue klaymen. Just as Rick is about to travel back to the beginning of the invasion to aid the aliens, the window above the bed next to the table crashes open, the curtains open up to reveal the RC truck is still in tact and that Pick is driving it. The truck rams into the TV while in midair knocking Rick off of it and sending him to his death as he gets impaled on the Klay World flag. However, all is not well as the time hat crashes to the surface of the table breaking apart completely.
Upon discovering this, Chip and Dr. Bob are ready to give up. Pick, however, persists that since Dr. Bob is a doctor that he can simply rebuild everyone and make who they were before. Dr. Bob initially rejects the notion that he's any kind of good doctor on the grounds that his operations end with people dying. However, Pick manages to persuade Dr. Bob into trying and they manage to rebuild klayworld.
After everyone is rebuilt, another assembly is held in the same way as from the beginning of the movie, however Dr. Bob proclaims that no matter how small, identical or retarded they are, they beat the odds and managed to prevent any other society from suffering the same indignities that they and previous klay societies have suffered. The film ends on an optimistic high note with the song "Cryin' Out Loud" as the camera cuts to further and further shots away from the table and eventually outside of their house, showing that the door is still open.

Plans that Robert Benfer was working on a full length movie were posted on Benfer's website in 2004, though according to him, it was going to be a zombie movie. After a while with no mention of the movie, Benfer posted an update on October 9, 2004. The zombie movie he originally planned was never mentioned again and the movie he was talking about was a movie based on his claymations. At the time, many things about the "Klay Movie", as Robert Benfer called it, were different from the finished product. The movie was going to feature "an invasion" and was to include many characters who ultimatly didn't appear in the finished product, including characters named Chris, Frank, Protester, etc. The movie was to feature appearences from the Boogie Monster, Peter The Pickle, and Professor Bob.
The Film was originally planned to be a B-movie style horror film, with special effects done by Jason Steele. Benfer started working on the "Klay Movie" script in November 2004. While writing it, the film was titled "Klay World: The Invasion". This title was scrapped, however, after a short lived, incomplete Klay World Flash game was titled by the same name. The entire original script was rewritten in late 2004. The new script became the final product with some improvised dialog.
The film entered pre-production in January 2005, and filming began in February 2005. Benfer continued to make internet shorts about Klay World throughout the process of making the movie. The film was completed by September 2005 and was released on DVD on October 25, 2005.
The soundtrack was available for download on KnoxsKorner.com when the movie first came out and received its own web page. The songs "Murder of Crows", "Dripping Taps", "Ultra F***" and "Sneak" were not featured in the downloadable soundtrack.

The third DVD related to the series was Klay World: Off the Table, which was released in 2005. The DVD sold very well and made Benfer over $80,000. It included two commentary tracks, one featuring Robert Benfer and the other featuring both Robert Benfer and Nikkie Benfer. It also included the teaser and the trailer for Klay World: Off The Table, two shorts from the main series [Hotdog Job parts 1 & 2 and I'm Not Your Friend Anymore] along with alternate dialog scenes for Dr. Brown and Chester the Long Armed Guy. This edition of the DVD featured two introductions, the unique animated Newgrounds intro created by Stamper followed by the "Klay Earth" title sequence featuring clips from the final cut of the film. While it is the most scarce version, it is widely considered the best edition among fans.
The DVD was re-released with a different cover in 2007 and was available on Amazon.com . The re-release featured a sequel to the Klay World Series DVD documentary, Outside The Knox 2. However, this version removed the two commentary tracks, the two shorts, the two alternate dialog scenes, the online teaser and trailer, the Newgrounds intro made by Stamper and the Klay Earth intro. Despite the addition of Outside The Knox 2, the addition of three deleted scenes from the original cut and a video tutorial on how to make a stop motion animation, this version of the DVD is considered the most lackluster and sterile since it effectively stripped away all the supplementory content from the previous version. The film itself was also altered in this version; the music during the scaling shot of Rick's corpse resting at the base of the flag pole was changed from a drumbeat to a violin chord, the scene is also shortened causing to film to be 1 hour and 29 minutes instead of 1 hour and 30 minutes, this release as well as the 2012 release has the original Knox's Korner logo plastered by the 2006 logo. Since this version was released after Knox had replaced his PC with a Mac, there exists a hypothesis that since the 2005 edition was homemade down to the DVD art that Knox was unable to maintain the resources from the previous version after obtaining the new computer and had to make a new edition from scratch, however, nothing on the matter has been confirmed.
It was once again re-released in 2012 with a new commentary track and a lower price. The DVD also had a brief limited edition that came with a signed case and a Bloody Klayman figure made by Benfer himself out of hardened clay. The original release cost $25, but was later lowered to $17. The final re-release and the current version now costs $8, while the limited edition cost $26. Because of its availability and its medium delivery in special features, this edition is considered the standard version among fans.
Klay World 2
In 2007, Robert Benfer announced that he will make a sequel to end Klay World, the film was going to be about "everything in Klay World is gone, the Klaymen have to leave Klay World" but when Youtube initiated it's partner program, Benfer dropped the film and decided to resume making Klay World episodes.
The 4 part mini-series, "Klay World: The Rodent", was intended to be the follow-up to Klay World: Off The Table, though it was never finished. Characters such as Chip, Rick, Pick, Dr. Bob, etc. appeared in the first two parts. For an unknown reason, the final two parts were never made and the story arc was abandoned. Despite the existing rumors that Benfer ceased the project on the grounds that his intended goal with the mini-series was impossible to achieve with the current tools at his disposal, nothing on the notion has been confirmed.
The Klay World Series finale, Klay World: All Gone, featured characters that were introduced in Klay World: Off The Table. References and clips from Off The Table were featured as well. This would serve as the substitute for Klay World 2.
The film is rated PG-13, but not by the MPAA, it was PG-13 for violence and some mild language.
- The short scene in which the two klaymen begin firing at each other is much like the one in The Matrix's Lobby Shootout Spree scene, it also has similar music.
- The train that hits the RC truck is actually a Union Pacific freight train, which appears to be hauled by a Dash 9 and another locomotive, the moment is also a reference to Back to the Future: Part III
- The 2005 DVD is in Widescreen, while the 2007 release is in fullscreen
