The Bones Brigade travels around California, Nevada, and Hawaii to different skate spots in search of a wisened old man, Won Ton "Animal" Chin. The movie is of the old-school nomadic, skate-everything-in-your-path genre with interludes of stopping to rip-up a big ramp, pool or kicker. After much searching and skateboarding, they locate a large ramp in the desert. They also find a Chinese character on the inside of the ramp's spine. They conclude that in searching for Mr. Chin, they may have found his spirit.
- Animal Chin - a late-'90s ska-punk band named after the movie
- Animal Chin - a song by experimental jazz band Jaga Jazzist; the first on their acclaimed album A Livingroom Hush (2001).
