Billy Mack by indilime
Santa Claus, by Howard Nemerov

Somewhere on his travels the strange Child
Picked up with this overstuffed confidence man,
Affection’s inverted thief, who climbs at night
Down chimneys, into dreams, with this world’s goods.
Bringing all the benevolence of money,
He teaches the innocent to want, thus keeps
Our fat world rolling. His prescribed costume,
White flannel beard, red belly of cotton waste,
Conceals the thinness of essential hunger,
An appetite that feeds on satisfaction;
Or, pregnant with possessions, he brings forth
Vanity and the void. His name itself
Is corrupted, and even Saint Nicholas, in his turn,
Gives off a faint and reminiscent stench,
The merest soupcon, of brimstone and the pit.
Now, at the season when the Child is born
To suffer for the world, suffer the world,
His bloated Other, jovial satellite
And sycophant, makes his appearance also
In a glitter of goodies, in a rock candy glare.
Played at the better stores by bums, for money,
This annual savior of the economy
Speaks in the parables of the dollar sign:
Suffer the little children to come to Him.
At Easter, he’s anonymous again,
Just one of the crowd lunching on Calvary.

And now for something... not quite the same... o_O

It turns out Terry Gilliam's animation work wasn't limited to Monty Python stuff...

For those of you still new to Glove and Boots...

So... did Bunny Rabbit and Mr. Moose just buy ping pong balls by the gross behind Captain Kangaroo's back?

C'mon down! I'll chew on a dog!

Oh my GOOAAUUGH! by notatracer
Remember The Great Space Coaster? Remember how the one guy had that little teeny tiny TV/video player and he'd show short films? This was one of them... I remember this one, though I never saw it in its entirety until now...

There were also a lot of shorts of "La Linea", that little big-nosed gibberish-speaking silhouette guy who would interact with the scenery (or lack thereof) and the hand holding the pencil that would bumble into the shot to draw something...

But one of the shorts I want to find again that I did see in its entirety was something called Happy Feet. No, no dancing penguins in this one. Instead, there seemed to be... a disembodied set of stick-figure legs... on the run from a bunch of spiders, a giant sentient baseball (uh, yeah) and a giant six-legged thing with one huge eye. At some point near the end, the film breaks and melts in the projector, and the characters interact with the blobby melty celluloid...
