Len-Lye

A special thanks to @mrspooksmcgee for reminding me of this stop-motion gem. An experimental film by New Zealand animator Len Lye, not to be confused with the Fleischer cartoon of the same name that came out also in the early 1930. I’m assuming the ‘Peanut Vendor’ song was popular at the time. 

Opinion: fear is subjective, and I’m guessing to me this isn’t as scary as much as it is fascinating, but the monkey puppet has an unsettling stare.
