In addition to being Thanksgiving, today is Terry Gilliam’s birthday, which is plenty in of itself to be thankful for. Here’s a short compilation of three groundbreakingly weird cartoons by Gilliam that were broadcast on British TV shows The Marty Feldman Comedy Machine and Do Not Adjust Your Set between 1968 and 1971. “Don the Cockroach,” “The Albert Einstein Story” and “The Christmas Card.”
