Houyhnhnms are the acutely rational race that Jonathan Swift envisages as archetypes of purity in Gulliver's Travels.  The reference serves as a counterpoint to the animations, where loaded societal icons inhabit a strange world. Urban spaces, amassed crowds, and orators are rendered in full cinematic action, alongside the colorful and idiosyncratic excesses caused by the animation process.
