TFF: "This town is not big enough for the two of them. Nor their moustaches."

AA: A puppet animation in bright colour, an evocation of the 19th century. The protagonist sports a very long moustache, curving impressively. Other gentlemen's moustaches droop of envy. There is a competitor whose moustache is extra thick. Follows a duel of moustaches which prove capable of extraordinary tricks. The moustaches intertwine, there is a hopeless mess, it can only be solved with a pair of scissors.
