“An excerpt from the 1958 Disneyland TV Show episode entitled Magic Highway USA. In this last part of the show, an exploration into possible future Transportation technologies is made. It’s hard to believe how little we’ve accomplished on this front since 1958, and how limited the scope for imagining such future technologies has become. Witness an artifact from a time where the future was greeted with optimism. Note the striking animation style here, achieved with fairly limited animation and spectacular layouts.”
That was the video caption from YouTube. The video is thought provoking (perhaps even disturbing) from a variety of perspectives. It’s far more unbelievable now than it was in 1958. The futuristic portion of the video starts at 39:00. Thanks to Dan Segal for sharing the link.
