Every year, usually during the summer months, I like to take a Sunday afternoon and fire up two beloved films, “Smokey and the Bandit” and the “Cannonball Run”. I have never been a scofflaw, that is not why I enjoy these films, but because they were on cable TV a lot when I was a kid and they came to symbolize the freedom of the open road and the promise of what technology could do for entertainment.
Summer is still a few months away, but I am hoping this wonderful fan art by Dunce Cap Dan might inspire you revisit these timeless classic. As a bonus you will also see what they might look like if they had made cartoons about them. I can’t help but think that “Cannonball Run” could make for a hilarious and more adult “Wacky Races”.
