Just some awesome clips from YouTube

"How Crayons Are Made" - An old-school Sesame Street clip. (I'm obliged to give "props" to Lucy Rogue for this.) I almost lost my shit when I heard this music:

"ZOOM" - An early 70's kid's show, for kids, by kids. You really only need to watch the first couple of minutes to get a full dose of the awesomeness:

"Swinging the Lambeth Walk" - A 1939 animation by Len Lye. Pretty amazing to think that this is all hand-painted and so superbly timed with the music:

"James Brown Teaches You To Dance" - My hero when it comes to dancing:

That's it!

Wow, thanks for posting these, particularly the crayon one, as I remember that from my childhood. It's strange how deeply these things sink into our psyche, isn't it?
