Back before cable TV made its debut in the Detroit area we had a broadcast premium movie service called “ON TV” that would take over Channel 20 at 8PM every night to broadcast uncut movies. Seeing as most movies are never exactly one or two hours in length they’d fill up the time until the next movie with either previews or short video clips by film students and the like. My favorites were always the stop-motion animations using real people. I recall one which told the story of a biker gang that rode around on invisible motorcycles terrorizing the locals including a bunch of geeks on their invisible scooters. Another one featured cowboys riding invisible horses and having shootouts with their extended index fingers. I dreamed of making movies like that myself some day.
Well, I never did get into movie making, but I still enjoy those cheesy stop-motion movies so you can imagine how cool I found the following to be:
