You've gotta see this. 1950s and 60s views of future transportation systems were so optimistic and wonderful. Sadly, few of these predictions have come true. However, I am hopeful that soon my family car will be able to separate into two pieces, allowing my wife to head to a high-rise shopping center in one direction while I head to work in another direction. Of course I'll be following color-coded highway lanes to glass tubes under the ocean on my way to my office-in-the-sky.
I love when I happen upon something on YouTube that I was not entirely aware of previously. This was part of a 1958 "Disneyland" TV episode narrated by the great Marvin Miller and directed by the legendary animator, Ward Kimball.
