The Chiodo Brothers (Stephen, Charles & Edward Chiodo, all born in Bronx, New York) are a group of sibling special effects artists, best known for their film Killer Klowns from Outer Space and creating puppets and effects for films such as Critters, Ernest Scared Stupid, and Team America: World Police. The Chiodo Brothers did the claymation sequence for the Large Marge scene from Pee-wee's Big Adventure. They created the elaborate mouse dioramas and "mouseterpieces" featured in the 2010 film Dinner for Schmucks.[1] The band Chiodos was originally named "The Chiodos Brothers" after them, before modifying their title slightly.

Their studio has made several clay animation segments on The Simpsons:
