Happy Funshine Friday! To help you recover from yesterday’s wild & wonderful 4th of July celebrations we have a mellow, yet mind-expanding Bicentennial cartoon entitled 200.

American Gothic? Crazy, man, crazy.

200 is a three-minute, psychedelic eye-feast created by animator Vincent Collins in 1975 as a Bicentennial Grant Project for The United States Information Agency. This could be the grooviest propaganda you’ll ever see. Roll it.

Wait a darn minute. Did I catch sight of Colonel Sanders in there? Yes. Yes, I think I did. Far out!

    Outta sight !! No doubt heavily influenced by “Yellow Submarine” and the popular 7UP ads from Peter Max.

    Great to see the bicenntenial symbol. I started high school in 1976 and our school had a bicenntenial flag flying below the US flag.

      Definitely has that ‘Yellow Sub’ and Peter Max vibe. Nice to see “fun” government propaganda.
