Arnold was a terrible governor but made the best of the Japanese commercials staring Austrian muscle men. It only gets better so watch the whole thing.

The Dungeons of Harrow (Pat Boyette 1962) Hyundai Puppet Theatre Presents “Deong Deong Kung Ta Kung”

The Dungeons of Harrow
(1962) Directed by Pat Boyette (seriously, it was directed by Pat Boyette)
"Some say that this is a bottom-of-the-barrel B-movie, but I say it's a great B-movie. You've got your cheap scenery, bad dialogue, bleeding colors, bad continuity, and some great stereotypes. "Plan 9 from Outer Space" eat your heart out! This movie is perfect. It all takes place on a island. A ship is sunk and the survivors land on it only to find that it is occupied by a sadistic mad count. He's locked away his poor deformed mad sister and likes to beat his Moor servant with a whip. Now, it's the survivors' turn. Written and directed by the great comic illustrator, Pat Boyette. Pat Boyette (July 27, 1923– January 14, 2000) was a comic book artist best known for two decades of work for Charlton Comics, where he co-created the character The Peacemaker. He sometimes used the pen names Sam Swell, Bruce Lovelace, and Alexander Barnes.

Max Flatow is a precocious, social miscreant who has a way with home-made explosives. When he tires of these, he runs away from home only to emerge seven years later as Max Frost, the world's most popular entertainer. When Congressman John Fergus uses Frost as a political ploy to gain the youth vote in his run for the Senate, Frost wills himself into the system, gaining new rights for the young. Eventually, Frost runs for the presidency. Winning in a landslide, he issues his first presidential edict: All oldsters are required to live in "retirement homes" where they are forced to ingest LSD, taking the 60s catch phrase "Never trust anyone over 30" to its most extreme consequences.Written by Rick Gregory  
Given the state of the US this film does not look any worse than the last decade.

Ladislav Starevich's the Cameraman's Revenge (1912) the Insect's Christmas (1913) the Frogs Who Wanted a King (1924) the Devil's Ball (1933)

How about some crazy cool 100 year old Russian animation with dead frogs and bugs by the great: 
dislav Starevicegan working with motion pictures while at the Museum of Natural History at Korvo, Russia. Starevitch was attempting to document insect life with motion pictures, and he began experimenting with animation when stag beetles he was trying to film became lethargic under the heat of the bright movie lights. Starevitch constructed realistic models of stag beetles, and recreated their actions through stop-motion animation. In doing so, Starevitch discovered the possibilities of puppet animation.

Starevitch's stop-motion insects soon became actors in humorous little social satires often based on Aesop's fables, where they were joined by ants, frogs, birds, and other animated creatures. Although this sort of animation ultimately became synonymous with children's films, Starevitch's early animated films were aimed directly at an adult audience. His "Revenge of the Movie Cameraman" (1912), for instance, is a bedroom farce dealing with the marital sqabbles between two adulterous beetles. Starevitch's film "The Mascot" contains some of the darkest, most disturbing, imagery ever created for the cinema, and is practically guaranteed to unsettle the dreams of any viewer, regardless of their age. Starevitch is perhaps the only animator of his generation who surpassed the nightmarish qualities of the darkest elements found in the early cartoon features from the Walt Disney Studios.

Starevitch directed live action films as wells as animation, and many of his best animated films incorporated live action footage through editing and projection techniques. Starevitch's daughter, Nina, was featured in some of these films.

The influence of Ladislas Starevitch can be seen in the sort of visually disturbing films of contemporary animators such as like the Brothers Quay, and films like Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas.

Born Wladyslaw Starewicz, Vilma, Poland, August 6, 1892; died 1965.

Hoppity Hooper by Jay Ward in 1964, pilot but first: unforgettable 1967 Alka-Seltzer commercial

Man talking to his own stomach! R.O. Blechman was the hand behind this unforgettable 1967 Alka-Seltzer commercial.

Hoppity Hooper was an animated television series produced by Jay Ward in 1964, originally broadcast on ABC (1964-67), originally co-sponsored by General Mills and Topper Toys, and later syndicated under the title Uncle Waldo's Cartoon Show.
Like Ward's Brilliant Crusader Rabbit this pup has had something close to zero airtime.
