A live-action short, using many avant-garde film techniques, that looks at American car culture in the late 1960s. The main section deals with the many trials and obstacles a teenager must face on the path to being able to drive. Surviving the driver's education class is only the first step, as the teenager must then pass his driving test, and then finally get permission to borrow the family car.Written by

A young man's love affair with cars is examined from infancy to marriage.
Ward Kimball, Walt Disney's master animator & eccentric genius, brings his own brand of wacky humor as producer and director to DAD...CAN I BORROW THE CAR? This mostly live action short is full of animated bits, crazy montages, offbeat humor & rock n' roll music and contains a wonderfully weird spoof of a TV used car commercial. Everything from the DMV to drive-thru car washes are grist for the mill. The message here is not auto safety or good sense in car purchasing. The aim is simply entertainment and the acknowledgment of the automobile's domination of our culture.
Kurt Russell narrates; listen for Jesse White as the voice of his father. And that's the bottom half of Ward Kimball's face early in the film, munching on a tiny toy car.
