Evolution

1971 10 min

This short animation film about the evolution of life on Earth would make Darwin himself chuckle. It's funnier than any learned treatise, and yet it’s all here - from the single-celled amoebae romping about the ocean depths, to the first amphibious creatures crawling onto land, to the forefathers of Homo sapiens.
