Help Me Out?

Posted by DeadAnarchistPhil on December 12, 2010

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!

  1. Can’t say I remember this one – even though I was a bit of a cartoon enthusiast back in the day. Helpful of the lovely Daf eh?
    Just seeing the words betamax takes me back. I remember going out to buy a VCR for my bedroom with some birthday money and the guy in Rumbelows – remember them? – was really pushing me to go Beta…..but something told me that VHS was the way forward. It wasn’t a decision I regretted.

    Whenever I think of TV shows or films that I want more info on I use imdb.com…..worth a try next time you get stuck
    Take care

    Deep breath….now I am going to try and tackle the wikileaks blog!!

    • There’s quite a lot of animation about, it’s not surprising you haven’t seen it. If you haven’t had a look at the video properly have a gander when you get home, you may remember it. And yes, the good Daf did help us! 🙂

      I remember Rumbelows, vaguely! We had a Dixons, Currys, Granada and one or two other shops like, but I don’t remember a Rumbelows, but I know they existed.

      You know what’s funny? I checked the site Daf found the video on! And the video has been there for three years! So it was there when I checked, but it never came up when I searched for “Bottles”. I’ll bare the IMBD in mind for next time. 🙂

      Off to check out ya comment 🙂
