Help Me Out?

There’s no Wanker Of The Week today, I thought I’d do something light before I post my long serious blog tomorrow.
When I was a kid, about the mid to late 1980’s we were given a Betamax video system by a neighbour. It was around the time Sony was getting it’s arse kicked in the UK Video System market by VHS systems. So, we being poor, accepted the offer of a free Video System, be it outmoded or not!
With the System we got some tapes too. I can’t remember what adult pieces were on there, I’m not even sure we got any adult videos (I’m not talking about porn here btw), I only remember having cartoons. We had a few Warner Bros cartoons on there, I think they were anyway. But the one I liked the most was about a scentist or chemist who travled through his bottles. I’m not sure if he fell asleep and dreamed it or he actually shrank himself or someone did it to him. I think skeletons were dancing as well as he was boiled and pushed through his many glass implaments.
Sounds like a bad dream doesn’t it? But it wasn’t it was funny and meant to be a little bit scary but interesting for the children as well as adults. From the animation it looked like it could’ve been from the late ’40s to the early ’60s, most likely American, though I could be completely wrong.
I think it’s name was ‘Bottles’, though I could be completely wrong with that too! I’ve been trying to find this animation since I got on-line back in 2006! The last time I saw it was 1996, I think, it was on the BBC at Christmas time, I think. I know, there’s a lot of “I think!”‘s in this post, but it was so long ago! If anyone has any idea what it is or if they’ve seen anything like it, or even if you know of a site where I can maybe try and find it, then let me know! I’ve already searched Youtube but I couldn’t find it, also searched Wikipedia with no joy. So, let us know if you have any idea!
Daf found it! Three cheers for Daffers!
