The History of the World Episode 65

UK, 1993 (MIFF 1994, Animation Focus)

Director: Phil Mulloy

Episode 65 is one sample episode of a large number of short animations, planned by Phil Mulloy, to tell the history of the world. The animation style peculiar to the earlier 'cowboys' series is apparent. His subjects are all the bad things of this world, through drawing upon history.
