About
Abandon Bob Hope
"This film is a bastard satirical mutation comprised primarily of animated collage bits of Gustave Doré's Divine Comedy engravings of the Inferno and those oversize ""how to"" books by Walter Foster and animator Preston Blair. You know the ones. The diametrically opposed bits were selected, photocopied, chopped up and then processed in a blender before being forced at gun point onto film. As a final conceptual insult this scathing critique of bland toons is only available for screening on video. SEE the Hand of cartoon Fate! REVEL in the uncomfortable juxtapositions of high and low brow! TRY to figure out why Bob Hope's skull is in this film!"
