Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Animation director Phil Austin puts his "live" cast through some very cartoony motions in the 30-minute Eat or Be Eaten. There's a crisis in Labyrinth County, and TV journalists Hee and Shee are on the scene. As the good people of Labyrinth ingest one another, the action is interrupted by uproarious TV commercial parodies. The film also takes a few well-aimed shots at televangelists (and remember, this was before the Jim and Tammy Faye schedule). Another stream-of-consciousness masterpiece from the Firesign Theatre Folks (Phil Proctor, Peter Bergman et. al.)
