Aha! Now my limited intelligence allows me to barely make out the image. Oh, I hope you never learn what it is to have the hellish life of the dull and brutish Morlocks!

Any one think that this:

The ArticleThe 'alien invasion' show, which was supported by Sussex Police, took place without parents being informed, leaving some furious that they had to comfort their terrified children.

kinda makes it seem that the parents were more pissed off that they actually had to interact with their children (because of something that happened during "school hours", when they believe it's not their problem), rather than because their children were "Traumatized" by the school officials (which in itself makes it seem like the school people were molesting them or something). Just an observation I had, although it may be reading too much into it, or it may just be the way it's worded.

I wonder what's next on those school officials agendas? A fake school shooting? A fake terrorist attack? A fake asteroid coming to destroy the world?

Ewww common!.

The imagination fires alone, theres no need to say "Oh yeah, i saw an alien when i was whit the car, and i killed him!", why? let the children grow naturally.

Must've been a slow news day because I distinctly remember reading this exact same story several years ago.

Yeah, I think variations of this story have played before, most often in church youth groups. I still vaguely recall one occasion when someone got their ass killed because they tried to spoof the wrong guy. Looking....

Heh. I suspect the uploader is having everyone on....or has no idea himself what he's uploaded. This is a clip from a 1985 "claymation" feature called The Adventures Of Mark Twain, in whichTom Sawyer and Becky accompany Twain on a review of his career. The part you link is related to Twain's last, unfinsihed novel, The Mysterious Stranger. It certainly is weird, as it tells an odd, bizarre and confusing story involving Satan and his nephew, and dealing with the,among other things, the foolishness, stupidity and cruelty of humans. Twain didn't finish it before he died (his biographer did put an ending on it).

Twain's later work is well known for it's bitterness and hopeless outlook. For much of his later life Twain was deeply depressed and absolutely miserable.Two of his daughters died as young adults, and his wife died several years before him. He had made astronomical amounts of money on his writing, but lost everything due mainly to foolish investments and backing of unsuccessful inventions. His later writing reflected his mental state, and it was bitter and misanthropic. The millions who deeply loved Twain's early masterpieces such as Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn were confused and put off by Twain's later deep cynicism and seeming hatred of life and the world in general.

There was nothing "banned" about the film clip. It's just not very well known. After all, why would anyone want to see it? It's in uber-cheesy claymation, aimed at kids, and in that part uses Satan to attack man's faith in God. Not one you want to rent for a cozy Friday night of belly laughs with the family in front of the telly.

Yes, I "researched" a bit and found the movie. But I still think that the segment is kreepy, especially without context. Anyway, the whole thing made me look back at my (rather recent) childhood and I remembered two cartoons that left a rather large impact on me because they were so messed up. The first one was a foreign production involving a family of rabbits (or "hares"? I don't know that much english zoological terminology). I forgot the name, but it's a quite famous production I think. It had a terribly bloody fight at the end and was really sinister at times. The second was an obscure German production called "Felidae", where a cat detective solves a crime among cats. Sounds disneyesque? Don't be fooled, the cats are not anthropomorphic, the crimes are ritual murders and it is probably the only non documentary movie featuring sex between cats as a plot point. They recently aired this at 1200 again, probably assuming it was for kids, being a cartoon. Another generation traumatised :D

edit: they actually have the full film on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_dqZwCxk_vk It's an english dub, pretty good if you ask me. If you can spare the time, watch that movie, it's great (for grown ups ;))
