The Family Holiday

Animation & Artists Moving Image 1975 8 mins


We’re all going on a summer holiday, and things might rapidly head off a cliff. This purposefully puerile parody of the package holiday draws on alternative comix, Gilliamesque cut-out animation and schoolboy humour in equal measure. The line and colour work is beautifully crisp and clear, particularly in this version scanned from the original negatives. Some of the less PC moments will make modern eyes cringe, but as smartly designed, daring comic animation for grown-ups it should be saluted.
