See the future of a decade plus ago!
14 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This fairly cheaply animated short brought to us by automobile manufacturers of the mid 1950s (there are fewer around now). This is supposed to take place in the then future of 2000 - showing the new 2001 cars. The cars of 2000 could pretty much drive themselves, fly in order to pass a slower car - nothing like the actual cars of 2000 - or 2012 for that matter, and probably not in 2022 either.

An office "worker" who has little to do - think George Jetson but looks more like Mr. Spacely, is thinking about getting a new car - his old one is almost a year and a half old. He drives home, reading the paper most of the way. He arrives home (with a 4-car garage) and after eating dinner of a pill and a drink, the table mounts on the wall and becomes a 3-D TV screen - one with a feature that our TVs don't have - people can actually enter your living room through the TV. One man does that to discuss the history of automobiles.

The man's alleged grandfather is shown with a 4-seat auto with hand-crank starter, no doors, no windshield, and no lights. Where then shown how cars were made safer and better over time. Old Grandad is driving pretty much through the entire program, including at the end, when he drives through the TV screen, says cars have changed a lot in his 117 years and he's going to go get a new car.
