Barnes & Barnes – Fish Heads

Like many an unsuspecting youth, we spent what most probably constitutes an inordinate amount of time with Dr. Demento in the early 80s. So of course this next clip tripped our nostalgia circuit pretty hard.  Yes, it’s the Demento staple ‘Fish Heads’, by Barnes & Barnes (otherwise known as Robert Haimer and Bill “Danger, Will Robinson” Mumy).  And yes, that is indeed a young Bill Paxton in the clip.

Update: (03/05/07): Because I’m unwilling to cut Robert Haimer (aka 1/2 of Barnes & Barnes) a percentage out of the whopping $0 dollars of profit I’ve made on Transbuddha since the pants-explodingly popular addition of the Fish Heads clip, you can no longer watch it here.  I bet YouTube has it, though.

    Wow, haven’t seen that in ages. I remember when I was kid watching HBO and they would play video shorts between movies. This was one of them.

    Anyone here remember the video shorts on HBO in the late 70’s, early 80’s? There was one animation with aliens and wierd music. I have been looking for that and never had any luck.

    I kind of remember that one and how freakish I thought it was.
