Watch These Tiny (Animated) Machines Clean Up The Streets Of London
March 20, 2014

According to English folklore, the streets of London are said to be paved with gold — but anyone who's actually been to the English capital knows that's far from the case.

In this trio of short animated films, tiny machines do their part to clean up the cigarrette butts, spat-out gum and match boxes that make up a much greater portion of London's streets than gold.

The series is called Tiny Worlds, and it was created by the English visual effects studio Rushes, which was founded in London in 1977 (it's a safe bet they've seen their share of grime accumulate on the city's streets since then).
