Product Description

The Hubley Studio has created some of the most innovative and challenging animation in the history of the art form. Beginning with the partnership of John and Faith Hubley, and continuing with Faith and Emily Hubley, they have received countless awards and international acclaim. The Hubley magic now can be enjoyed in all its glory on DVD. Included in this collection are "Everybody Rides the Carousel" (1975, 72 min., mono), a profound and joyous excursion through life, plus the Academy Award-nominated "A Doonesbury Special" (1977, 26 min., mono), based on Garry Trudeau's brilliant comic strip, and "My Universe Inside Out" (1996, 25 min., stereo), Faith Hubley's animated self-portrait intercut with a parallel story of the universe.


The third volume of "The Hubley Collection" contains three of the innovative studio's most unusual and interesting works. Based on the writings of psychoanalyst Erik Erikson, "Everybody Rides the Carousel" (1976) examines the stages of human personality development. "A Doonesbury Special" (1977) was the last film on which John and Faith Hubley collaborated, and it was their last Oscar nominee. Created with Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Garry Trudeau, this neglected television special brings to life the situations that appeared in the strip during the '70s: the football huddle, dinner at Walden Commune, the day-care center, etc. The familiar characters--Mike, Mark, Joannie, and Zonker--examine their present lives and how the legacy of the political activism of the '60s has affected each of them. In "My Universe Inside Out" (1996) Faith Hubley reflects on her own life and work, including her distinctly odd childhood, her life with John, their children, and the personal films she's made since his death.

The Hubleys use the medium of animation to explore often challenging ideas and find humor in quirky, personal ways. Their films are completely unlike the slapstick cartoons of the Hollywood studios but remain extremely satisfying in their own way. --Charles Solomon

Format: DVD
I bought this for the Doonesbury Special, but found myself delighted by the other pieces on the disc as well. Everybody Rides the Carousel is an exploration of the stages of life as defined by psychologist Erik Erikson. My Universe Inside Out is a self-portrait/creation story by Faith Hubley. All three shorts are wonderfully animated and voiced, and are a great introduction to the Hubleys' work if you're unfamiliar with it.

I used the "Everyone rides the carousel" video in my high school psychology class and it was very effective. It provides an excellent visual componenet to accompany Erickson's stages of development. While it is a bit outdated the message and impact are still there.
