You thought it was snoopy, but it was ME, DIO!

Awesome, but it is really necessary to say “somebody” did this? I’m sure the author would appreciate some well-deserved credit.

Prog rock and depressive 1960s kids comics: a winning combination that made me the man I am today.

I prefer that person remain like Tank Man from Tienanmen Square, anonymous and symbolic, so that he or she can represent ALL of us.

Haha no seriously, credit should be given.

Not bad. Check out this Bad Brains version sync’d w/ the Christmas special.

This is wonderful!

For me, it joins Spongebob singing “Warpigs” as a very good thing:

It must have been quite the long distance runaround to find all those clips.

I’m in favor of introducing more people to Yes.

Awesome!
(i never before realized that Roger Dean’s entire oeuvre was inspired by a line from this song; “Mountains come out of the air and stand there.” Which also means that the “look” of Avatar was inspired by Jon Anderson’s stream-of-consciousness lyrical style.)
Combining my childhood with my teen-age years like that was too much for my tear ducts.
Thanks, Mark.

Most wonderful. Shared with several friends.

Now that you mention it, Linus DOES look a lot like Steve Howe as a kid! Such great music.

Fan-freaking-tastic!!! But I was a little weirded out as I don’t ever recall seeing grown ups in these shows. also, notice how no one has ever seen Schroeder and Rick Wakeman in the same room at the same time!??!

Aw!

Puts me in mind of this one, also nicely done:

This one is, like the Yes one, also by Garren Lazar:

Why yes, if Lucy grew up to be a rock goddess, she probably would sing like that! :smiley:

Another good one (I prefer this one, actually) by Garren Lazar. A cover of LaGrange by ZZ Top (link is in “good one”, I forgot how to embed a video here)

Thank you for this. Enjoyed Bad Brains much more than that horrid prog rock in the original post (sorry to those of you who like that stuff).

That was utterly FANTASTIC!

Every single frame of this was just perfect. What a labour of love.

I’m going to see what else this guy’s done - if it’s a fraction as good as this I’ll want to see it.

@frauenfelder please update the post to give some credit to the maker!

Lucy holds the football, Charlie Brown begins to runs towards it…

This is great, because the Roundabout one just made me realize how much influence Yes had on The Police.
