Deadsville (AKA: The Kurt Cobain Christmas Carol)
Directed By Oliver Brown / Simon Tofield 2005
TV-> VHS-> DV.AVI (Cleaned up in TmpegENC, and burnt to DVDr.) This is a rip from that DVDr.
Ripped using Dvd Decryptor, and WinAVI.
"A surreal and offbeat animation set in a fictional community of dead people, the final resting place for the famous. It is a place much like earth but with just one major difference; the inhabitants are already dead and stuck with each other for eternity."
The premise is that famous dead people meet up, and a record producer (William Shakespeare!) wants Kurt Cobain to write a happy, Christmas type song, but, everything he comes up with is too downbeat. It really is a trippy cartoon, also "Starring" Hitler, Groucho Marx, Princess Diana, Freddie Mercury, and a very fat Elvis. (But it's a Thyroid problem. Honest.)
