Dobbin Books: "Continuing Böröcz's absurdist exploration of walnut shells, 'In a Nutshell' branches off into proto-Russian Constructivist imagery of the nut-cracking hammer (minus sickle)."

Andras Böröcz: "I remember when TV arrived in Hungary in the end of the fifties. My favorite cartoon logo of a Soviet educational children program inspired this new series about walnuts. In the cartoon's logo, a young pioneer arrives on a spaceship next to a giant walnut and breaks it with a sledgehammer. "
