From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
The Chiodo Brothers (Stephen, Charles & Edward Chiodo, all born in Bronx, New York) are a group of sibling special effects artists, best known for their film Killer Klowns from Outer Space and creating puppets and effects for films such as Critters, Ernest Scared Stupid, and Team America: World Police. They created the elaborate dioramas featured in the 2010 film Dinner for Schmucks. The post-hardcore band Chiodos (originally called The Chiodos Bros) is named after them as a tribute.
Their studio made the Willice and Crimbles claymation segment on The Simpsons, a parody of Wallace and Gromit in the same style of animation. Wallace and Gromit creator Nick Park voiced himself in the episode, as the creator of the fictional short.
