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.

Operation Ranger and Operation Buster-Jangle



What a crazy old world that was. "Mutually Assured Destruction." But we just thought it was normal at the time.
