What On Earth?

This entirely factual documentary comes via the National Film Board of Canada.

This animated short proposes what many earthlings have long feared — that the automobile has inherited the planet. When life on Earth is portrayed as one long, unending conga-line of cars, a crew of extra-terrestrial visitors understandably assume they are the dominant race. While humans, on the other hand, are merely parasites.

Story and animation by Les Drew and Kaj Pindal.

The Underground Movie

A fun little excursion to the earth’s core without having to deal with Doug McClure.

Everyone has wondered what it would be like to dig right through to the other side of the Earth. […] Dubbed “Old Chucknose” and equipped with amazing gadgetry, it bores through every layer of the Earth’s crust and center.

Via the National Film Board of Canada and directed by Les Drew in 1972.
