200 (Vincent Collins, 1975)

Patriotism has never been as trippy as it is in Vincent Collins’ 200 (1975), a psychedelic commission from the US Information Agency for the American bicentennial.  We were lucky enough to see the short in Kier-La Janisse’s latest Saturday Morning All-You-Can-Eat Cereal Cartoon Party and the audience loved it (particularly the moment when hamburgers come sailing from the Horn of Plenty).  So salute the flag and check yourself for epilepsy, just as the founding fathers intended!

200 coincidentally marks MMC!‘s 200th post!  Big thanks to you crazy kids (both of you) who stop by MMC!‘s tiny corner of the worldwide inter webs, and thanks in advance to that lone reader who will see us to 400!
