This three-part avant garde feature is often described as a surrealistic comedy. NBA-star Nate Thurmond is featured as an eight-foot-tall bug man who leads a civilization of blue-colored beings in the final episode. In the first segment, Richard Faun gives a running monologue on subjects such as pop art and Variety revues. The film is reflective of the San Francisco psychedelic scene that dominated the culture at the time of the initial release.
