Featuring Fred Savage and the animation of Will Vinton!


Never did see this tape back then, but I can see how it impressed plenty.

Rex always reminded me of local broadcaster Chip Moody.

Fred Savage??? OMG!

-danno. Just remembered who Fred Savage is. I wonder what he's doing these days, but I don't care enough to google it.

Never thought of that. Of course the way both Rex and Herb were later patterned as film critics in the Siskel and Ebert mold, I probably didn't catch on that (being stuck in Ohio).

This was something they made when a festival screening of Vinton's films was done in the 80's, and was subsequently released on home video (including the Dinosaur short in the mix).

Certainly an eye opener there. You wouldn't have think that given the nature of this video and the likeliness the kid won't have gone on to anything we'd remember.

It's best I don't know either. I'm sure he's probably in the gutter as far as I'm concerned!

A while back some guys did a podcast on this that got me interested in checking it out...
