In the 1980s and 1990s, Gary Larson's THE FAR SIDE was one of the most popular comic strips in the world, selling books and calendars and infiltrating the pop culture consciousness. The strip was such a hit that CBS produced a Halloween special in 1994, just a few months before Gary Larson retired, and it was a morbid and experimental animated short filled with death and dismemberment.
It may not have been a TV series, but nobody talks about TALES FROM THE FAR SIDE anymore, it's out of print on home video, and it never shows up on television. So was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold talk you through the strange THE FAR SIDE animated show that brings Gary Larson's popular comic strips to life, and adds macabre new tales to its legacy.
