VHS hell: Top Rock

The year was 1986, and music videos where the thing. Sensing a bandwagon waiting to be jumped on somebody over at Hanna-Barbera decided to license a few top 40 hits and drag some cartoon footage outta the morgue and give the kids what they wanted. Which was apparently a half hour of really poorly edited and painfully unimaginative crap. In fact this tape is so bad you can't even really enjoy it for it's inept badness. It's that unrelentingly bad. This is a, "Great Party Tape" only if you needed something to drive away party guests who've overstayed their welcome.

I don't remember exactly, but I think this is the tape that Dave played selections from at Japanese Animation Hell at AWA a few years back. I'm not certain because I think my mind has tried desperately to forget as a coping mechanism.

I've heard there were two or three more of these out there, but so far I haven't ran across any more at the Goodwill.
