Giant Beavers of Southern Sri Lanka is a short film based on Japanese monster movies created by Trey Parker. He also made the hilarious American History video below. You'll recognize many details from both videos reminiscent of South Park.
From the article in Cartoon Brew:
From the archives, here's the 1992 student film that Trey Parker, co-creator of "South Park," made at the University of Colorado -- a film that went on to win a student Academy Award (Silver Medal) in 1993. It was co-directed by Chris Graves.
Apparently Trey got his Japanese roommate to talk about the history of America as he knew it, which Trey then animated with crude paper cut-outs. The rest is... American History!
