Alternate Universe Saturday-Morning Cartoon?

I was going to write a serious post about my one major beef with the SotU speech last night, but I needed to decompress a bit (like we all do these days), so I got up at noon today (didn't get home from work until 1 AM), went for a nice hike, and decided to do some frivolous web-surfing.

In my web-navigation, I found the following, which looks like an episode of a 1980's vintage Saturday-morning cartoon based on the writings of Clark Ashton Smith- kinda like the "Wacky Adventures of Maal Dweb".





I like how the orbiting sarcophagus of doom seems to be trying to kill the planet by inducing diabetic shock.

Edit: The clip also plays like an alternative universe Marvel Comics tie-in, in which the sugar-cube bombing orbital sarcophagus is Galactose, sweetener of worlds. In this version, the Herald of Galactose would, obviously, be the Silver Spoon Surfer.

I dunno who the hero is here. It'd help if one of these folks was wearing a Hitler T-shirt.

Holy Squidectomy! That was trippy. Reminds me of Journey to the Mushroom Planet. Looks like all is well at the close, with opium poppies ready to burst . . .

I think the hero is the green squirmy thing that Deely-Bopper/Fez/Pink Suit/Cool Shoes puts on his stump. Without green-squirmy, that guy's got nothin'-except fashion sense...
