Quasi at the Quackadero and Make Me Psychic: Two Cartoons by Sally Cruikshank.

Sally Cruikshank is an American cartoonist and animator who worked on Sesame Street, and developed a very distinctive psychedelic aesthetic in her own animated shorts and painting.  I'm posting some of her artwork here, as well as two films, 1975's Quasi at the Quackadero (inducted into the National Film Registry) and 1978's Make Me Psychic.  These cartoons are wonderful; they really move in a very surreal, psychedelic style all of their own.  I'd love to see them in higher quality.


DVDs available here.

Thanks for the links Tristan.
I've never seen these before.
The first one reminds me of the movie
"The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus"
for some strange reason.

No problem Darren, glad you enjoyed them.

Wow, these are fantastic. I ran across them on Darren's site.

Like Trish said,I have a post where I did the syncs I found in my life experience and Sally's cartoons

We seem to have shared a lot of the same archetypes in our lives.
Thanks for introducing me to Sally's cartoons Tristan.
