I could cite so many reasons for blogging these links the first has to be 70's nostalgia; two fellas (from the guys over at The Sky Lounge) has the genius (Dan Lane) reference to Battle of the Planets sadly without the kaching sound effect that was pioneered through the show and subsequently employed in various other sword/lens flare dazzle sound effects in the 70's/80's, although you do get the theme tune... result!

I have also on an unrelated note been reminded of some 70's films by the bouncy ball bravia commercial: firstly the silver balls that chased kids around a small (read low-budget) supermarket, and then on the back of that, the film of the wee boy who had a magic tiger t-shirt... until his mom washed the shirt and then he lost his magic powers... more than that I have nothing for you... maybe I'll get back to it... maybe I won't... who can say?

Except for this completely unrelated piece of amazing animation with heavy star wars references... and yet is utterly original and funny and beware the Chubbchubbs.


If you are the sort of person who will only watch ONE animation piece this year...

Make sure you don't watch two.
