Our American Crossroads



The weird part of this documentary is the puppet diorama and its turntables. A strange form of presentation.

Of course, this documentary also represents about the first two-thirds of the famous poster by Robert Crumb.

Robert Crumb is a legend in his own mind.

Slot car buffs keep an eye out for Aurora t-jets on the model: Lincoln Continental, Mack dump truck, AC Cobra, also perhaps a Thunderbird, Corvette, and Mustang.
Love to know what a double-decker bus is doing in that neck of the woods, and what power is being used for the other non-Aurora shells.....

You could compare this film to an episode of the Wonderful World of Disney: The Magic Highway.

To find it, go to my website, called LeviCar, followed by dot com, and follow that with the hashtag #DisneyMagicHighway

That has a link to the full episode, and to a nine-minute clip from it.

Your might also compare part of the clip (timemarks 4:00 to 4:45) to the introduction to the Jetsons.
