Happy Trees (28 min.) can be seen either as a conceptual art comedy, or as a scathing satire
directed at the art world. It's main character, Bob, is modeled on Bob Ross (www.bobross.com), as is the film's "how-to" format. In this case, however, Bob is trying to draw Rauschenberg's "Erased deKooning Drawing," (http://www.sfmoma.org/msoma/artworks/93.html) which leads to a tricky philosophical problem: how do you draw an erased drawing? The problem compounds when three Barney-esque cheerleaders appear, effectively destroying the how-to show, and propelling Bob into a hilarious head trip.
