Anime Tchatchki: 'Ware the evil weed!


All you need is love, puh puh duh duh duh...

Here's a little hippy dippy animated short by Roger Glover circa 1974 dubbed "Butterfly Ball" based on the 1973 illustrated book by Alan Aldridge which in turn was based on the William Roscoe poem. (Landsakes! Talk about repurposing.) Essentially an animated music video/companion piece for his "The Butterfly Ball and the Grasshopper Feast" album, the track is entitled "Love is all" and was sung by, of all people,Ronnie James Dio of Black Sabbath fame. o_0? He must have been exploring his creative boundaries - I guess.

Anyway... I looked very carefully, but I'll be darned if I could find any psychedelic nooky bus. Wazzup wit dat?
