WTF WEDNESDAY! THE DISNEY FILES: MARS AND BEYOND


Remember that picture of Walt Disney and the horrifying robot I posted in my TABLETOP TALES. SHADOWRUN RUNDOWN #1 A Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah Day article a week or so ago? The one with Walt Disney and horrifying automaton he planned to arm with a chest-mounted machine gun, mustard gas breath, and a flame thrower he pelvic thrusts at Nazi-Communists? Well, oddly enough, I ran into the video this originally from.

This cool featurette covers a wide variety of subjects from the concept of evolution to the possibility of life on other plants. The animated bits are really cool and the whole video has this trippy out of this world tone. For anyone who wants to a Disney produce before they packaged them in plastic for the pre-teen audience, check out this incredible look into the universe of the imagination.

Also, it is noteworthy for animating Edgar Rice Burroughs's martian wildlife from John Carter of Mars, which recently enjoyed a movie adaptation, which you can see a review of it on my friend Zack's blog here.




I also decided, since it's Avatar Week, to reward all the kiddies cool enough to check out this article with a link to the weirdest episode of The Last Airbender. Aang is exhausted from stress/training and has bizarre dreams. Momo and Appa talk in the episode! 0.0
