If you're somebody who considers animation an art form, this short (about 60 minutes)video is for you (happy hunting finding it, 'tho---it's been out of print for years). The video centers on Bruce Bickford, who originally was tapped to produce some animated sequences for Frank Zappa's TV project, 'A Token Of His Extreme' (1975),and later produced the clay animated footage in Zappa's videos, 'The Dub Room Special' (1981),and 'Baby Snakes' (1978). This video includes footage from all of the above,plus some early animated shorts. What makes this video even more desirable is some orchestral Zappa music that was added special for this video project. Do yourself a favour, and avoid any & all psychedelic drugs before undertaking this video (you'll thank yourself afterward). No MPAA rating here, but contains some pretty intense and downright disturbing claymation sequences (including some graphic violence & sexual themes that border on the pornographic)
