Poe's Saturday Cartoon: Bambi Meets Godzilla (1969)

A 50 second build up and then a five minute laugh. That is the kind of response this little animated gem from Marv Newland usually got when it played at midnight movie showings in the 1970s. One of the greatest examples of simplistic animation, Bambi Meets Godzilla was made only after Newland couldn't complete a live action film he was working on. He created the short while he was renting an apartment from Adriana Caselotti, the voice of Snow White from the Disney classic. Talk about irony!
