It's the Bass Bass Bass Bass Words

Continued From: "Catch Some Bass"

Here's my favorite motion picture title sequence of them all, from "It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World" -- and it happens to have been designed by Saul Bass.

I have watched this animation more than 100 times since that initial Saturday matinee at Martin's Cinerama in 1964 Atlanta, partially as a perk of my working in movie theatres, and partially because I am mad quadrupled.

It should be noted, the original color palette has been altered in this version, apparently for the home video release. Otherwise, the design is intact.

Morty at the Movies with Morty the CatOur cat enjoys the "Mad World" title sequence, too. In fact, this photo is him watching the very same.

And now, Morty shares his favorite movie title sequence, perfect since it's designed by Saul Bass.
