Wild Wild World
Wild Wild World is a Warner Bros. cartoon released in the Merrie Melodies series in 1960 and directed by Robert McKimson. It's a parody of the television series Wide Wide World hosted by Dave Garroway. In the cartoon, "Cave Darroway" presents a recently discovered film taken during the Cro-Magnon era. The final gag in the cartoon depicts a modern elevator utilizing the primitive operational methods of the stone age elevator shown in the "film." Because of the long lead time in producing an animated cartoon, the TV program which inspired the cartoon had already been canceled when the cartoon was released. The cartoon is available on DVD as a bonus short on disc four of Looney Tunes Golden Collection: Volume 6.
