16mm Theater #1

16mm Theater is my new series here on Weird Universe, in which I will share some of the stranger films in my 16mm collection. Today's feature: The Rainbow Bear, 1970

The only way I can describe this film is "acid trip," and if you watch it I'm sure you will agree. Weirder still is the fact that this was apparently made for children, as it was produced by American Educational Films. And the weirdest fact about this short is that it was directed by Bill Meléndez, perhaps best known for A Charlie Brown Christmas.

Sorry about the poor quality, my projector doesn't have a telecine mode and I don't have a proper video camera.

All I can say is that some parts of A Charlie Brown Christmas make a lot more sense now...

That, and our friend sure is hit and miss with his comments to go with his links...

I had never even heard of this film before I found it on eBay, so I wasn't aware that there were other versions.
