->"Capricitous califrag Morgan M. Morgansen stood in the longroom of his fourwalls, narcissising himself in the doubleglass. He horizontalized his neckbow and let a long stream of air out of his facehole. He was ready to lothariate. Or at least, ready as he’d ever be."

''Morgan M Morgansen's Date with Destiny'' and its sequel ''Morgan and Destiny's Eleventeenth Date: The Zeppelin Zoo'' are short films produced by hitRECord, an online production company run by Creator/JosephGordonLevitt, who in addition to editing and directing the Morgan M. Morgansen films, plays the eponymous Morgan. Despite their short running time (''Date With Destiny'' runs at 5:23 and ''The Zeppelin Zoo'' tops out at 6:55), both films are notable for their fanciful animated imagery, steampunk setting, and weird, made-up wordplay narration.

The films follow Morgan, a chaplinesque NiceGuy, and his romance with the lovely [[ManicPixieDreamGirl Destiny]] (played by Lexy Hulme). Other characters include the [[GrumpyBear Food Penguin]], Destiny's pre-now lovebuddy [[{{Jerkass}} Lionel]], and Destiny's purr-pet [[CuteKitten Madame Ballofur]].
