"Heaven and Earth Magic" (also called "Number 12, The Magic Feature," or "Heaven and Earth Magic Feature") is an American avant garde feature film. It was originally released in 1957 but was re-edited several times with the final version being released in 1962. The film primarily uses cut-out-animated photographs.

The first part depicts the heroine's toothache consequent to the loss of a very valuable watermelon, her dentistry and transportation to heaven. Next follows an elaborate exposition of the heavenly land, in terms of Israel and Montreal.

The second part depicts the return to Earth from being eaten by Max Müller on the day Edward VII dedicated the Great Sewer of London.
