Killer Tomatoes Preston Blair Swipe

A "Preston Blair Swipe" is when somebody rips off a drawing from the Animator's Old Testament, the 'Cartoon Animation' book, and usually uses it for an advertisement or window display, or something. In this case, we have an entire sequence of drawings used as uncanny "reference" for whoever animated the 'Attack of the Killer Tomatoes' TV cartoon. Jay had this on a VHS tape from her youth, and I spotted it a few years's taken me awhile to get around to posting it, but I was inspired by the ultimate PB Swipe that Steve found in Michigan.

Ripping off these poses almost injects a little bit of decent animation into this, but not quite. It's pretty painful regardless.
