When the Circus Comes to Town

I have no idea of the provenance of this half-hour compilation. Shown at cinemas before the main feature? Whatever the case, it has everything. Cornball music, girly cheesecake, animated cartoon, stop-motion cartoon, narration by a chimp. Also, the highly disturbing image reproduced below. Somehow I feel it relates to the "horse fondling" theme of yesterday.

At Home with Mrs. Hen

At Home with Mrs. Hen by Tali, National Film Board of Canada

Illustrates the sad reality of single-parent families. Expect to see this shocking video feature in the 2016 Presidential campaign.

One of those essential holiday treats!


Karlsson-on-the-Roof from Maripuka85 on Vimeo.

Young boy subject to hallucinations is befriended by drunken fairy godfather. In Russian, but that hardly matters.

The German live-action version is even odder.
