Summary
A hilarious, slapstick caricature of motorcycle gangs in which the cyclists bound across the countryside on invisible bikes that leave visible tire marks. A mean-looking group, the Vicious Cycles, Inc. takes on the Mild Ones Scooter Club. Stopped by two motorcycle policemen, the Vicious Cycles' dishonest victory is soured as the disheveled Mild Ones, recovered from being pushed off the road, see them being ticketed by the police. Not only that, but the Vicious Cycles lose the girl, who goes off with a group of men riding children's scooters. Utilizing the pixillation technique of animation, this is an excellent example of satiric humor and stereotyping. (See also: BLAZE GLORY and SERGEANT SWELL)
