Family Tyranny (Modeling and Molding)

1987, 8:08 min, color, sound

Writes McCarthy: "A father and son without a mother, a house on the hill.

Fatty Daddy Tyranny
Break his back
Wack wack a doo
Daddy, a roly-poly alpiner
Kissin' each other behind the door
So smack and blackened the eye
Of that little punky winker
Slap, slap a doo
Down the stairs we go
Abusive tyranny."
