The Dump: Plot Summary
Ugly Dave (Mr. Dvorchack) has been the resident of a dump yard for over 20 years. A couple of years back, Dave and his friend, Pearly, sit to have a drink. Their conversation is interrupted by a creature in the dump. The dump monster was a creature born from heat and garbage. It lives off the garbage and whatever it ate, became a part of it.
Pearly is eaten alive and when Dave chases it down and corners it, he notices a puppy in the midst of all the junk. Let’s just say that the creature was a dog once upon a time which sort of mutated. Dave makes the monster his pet and names it Otto.
Love, Death And Robots: The Dump: Ending Explained
In the present day, we are shown the story of a condescending city inspector who comes to evacuate Dave and clear the dump because it’s being a nuisance for the fancy condominiums that are built around it. Dave says he doesn’t care for new sanitation laws that prohibit the dump because he’s been living there for way too long. He offers the inspector a story instead and says that after hearing it if the inspector still wants him to vacate, he would. Dave tells the story of Otto and Pearly, which the inspector doesn’t bother listening to. Right after, Otto shows up and gobbles up the Inspector alive. As this happens we can see the bones of Pearly which are now part of Otto, much like what’s going to happen to the condescending man.
