Interesting - I've never seen that before. I'm trying to think of something similar from my GA childhood - the best I can come up with is Schoolhouse Rock.

I'm 45. I started my illustrious career working at CKVR television in Barrie, Ontario back in 1987. To make a short story long, one of my jobs was master control operator. The guy who puts the show on the air. I worked from 9 p.m.-6 a.m. We'd put on all kinds of crap. Have gun will travel. Gunsmoke. What's my line. Leave it to beaver. And a really crappy cheapo movie that would arrive on 16mm film that I'd forget to change half way into the second reel at 3 a.m. and would end up unspooled on the floor. Anyhow, one of our jobs was to fill in dead air. Between 1 - 5 a.m. not a lot of advertisers would buy air time so you'd look in the play log and see "PSA". Public. Service. Announcement. We had a huge stack of NFB shorts, and one of my favourites was "Log Drivers Waltz".
Gotta say thanks smitty.

Thanks for this Subs. Funny how a little cartoon can so completely take me back to my youth when I only had 3 channels. This put a smile on my face and nearly a tear in my eye.

/Happy Canada Day indeed to all my fellow Canadian Farkers.

For some reason, this video does the same thing for me, and I've only been to Canada once in 1995.

Seriously, I have no idea why this fills me with both childlike wonder and bottom of the whiskey bottle nostalgic depression.

Crap, I just figured it out: It sounds exactly like Steve Buscemi, slightly sped up. Probably isn't, but the similarity is uncanny.

Log Driver's waltz greeted me every morning before I watched my saturday morning cartoons.


One of my favourite canadian short films.

Brings me back to the days of 12 channels, Elwy Yost telling me why classic serial shows were awesome on Magic Shadows, and Saturdays watching Vincent Price camp it up on The Hilarious House of Frightenstein.

I was at a retirement party for a buddy a few years back and on the display board of remembrances was a picture of my friend with Vincent Price - couldn't believe it. Turns out my buddy was the director / jack of all trades for the show. If I remember correctly, he said they filmed all clips in a few days. He also said that Price was an extraordinary and hilarious person.
