Don’t Eat The Yellow Snow

January 24, 2016

Don’t Eat The Yellow Snow,” (1974) written and performed by Frank Zappa, animated by N.J. Verburgt. This track combines a second song,  “Nanook Rubs It,” a commentary on the fur industry.

Note: In the real world, don’t call Inuit people “Eskimos,” don’t look for penguins in the Arctic, and don’t eat snow, period. Do enjoy the humor of these animated songs, though.
