Animalympics (1980)

Animalympics (1980)

Directed by: Steven Lisberger

Starring: Gilda Radner, Billy Crystal, Harry Shearer

You know those old Merry Melodies cartoons that were like an announcer talking about a zoo and all the animals in the zoo are caricatures of 1940’s celebrities? Well, if you take out any and all comedic timing, and replace Mel Blanc with Harry Shearer, Animalympics is what you’d get. DON’T DO IT!

Animalympics is a series of bad, short cartoons about sports (some Olympic, some not at all), where the people just happen to be animals. Because you can be racist by depicting different people as different types of animals, and it’s funny children’s fun!

Yeah, I got more of the 80’s celebrity caricatures than the old Looney Tunes cartoons, but at least that shit never made me want to shoot myself in the nuts to give me a reason to stop watching them. Fuck you, Harry Shearer.
