If you're a devoted fan of animation, you're likely familiar with Nelvana, a huge animation studio based in Canada. Their list of animation credits is far too lengthy to mention here, but they started in the late 70s by creating some unusual TV specials, unusual both in animation design and storyline. I've featured two of these specials before, and today's find is yet another example.
Please Don't Eat the Planet: An Intergalactic Thanksgiving involves a family of--ahem--space farmers, who find a planet on which humor is the most valued thing in life. The locals find the farmers very funny, much to the farmers' dismay, and...my, this already sounds weird and I've just scratched the surface of what it's about. But trust me, it's about Thanksgiving. I'll let the special speak for itself. Enjoy!
