The Sunshine Makers (Van Beuren 1935)

6 Feb

A DPV fan writes us:

“I watched “The Sunshine Makers” (2015) on Prime the other night. Today I wanted to look at its poster, so I searched for it on Google and stumbled across this 1935 animated short. I didn’t find it particularly trippy in execution, but the idea of bottling and delivering sunshine by happy hippies, er, pixies, sure felt prescient. In fact, their lab at 1:17 (https://youtu.be/84StCRUgG18?t=77) reminded me in no small way of the labs where Scully and Sands made their ‘sunshine’.”

Enjoy the weekend!
