 Sally Cruikshank’s classic Quasi at the Quackadero (1975) is one of the most widely circulated independent animated shorts in the history of the medium, earning it a well-deserved spot on the National Film Registry. Tapping into some of the same uneasy and hysterical energy that Collins also mined, Cruikshank’s films often explore a fascination with the mayhem and imagination of classic studio animation from the early 1930s, transporting that energy to a contemporary context in which the surrealism and character tropes take on a complex significance and satirical humor.
