Description from the packaging.

Total protection from burn-in and burnout- in one attractive package.

Tired of screen savers not built around brilliant, cutting edge satire? So was cartoonist G.B. Trudeau, so he asked leading software designers at Doonesbury Toonscapes to get busy. The result: Ten animated modules so intense, so insanely diverting, they were delivered a full sixteen months behind schedule.

Was it worth it? If you prefer staring at crisscrossing colored worms, probably not, but otherwise, are you kidding? This entertainment package is so elegant you and your friends will want to dress up to watch it. Among your future favorite modules are:

Grassy Knoll: Zonker finds time-and so will you-to literally watch the grass grow.

Chip Shot: California peace officer B.D. maintains sidearm proficiency by shooting away your spreadsheet, and then retrieving and replacing it- only to blow it away again.

Sin Lobby: Messieurs Butts, Jay, Brewski and DumDum, bigtime reprobates all, float across your screen with cheerful disregard for their own social consequences.

Appropriation: J.J. covers up both her canvas and her cluelessness by borrowing from her betters. The art world's greatest hits reconfigured.

R-R-Ron Headrest: Reagan-era screen apparition refitted with pithy non-sequitors for the post-slacker age.

Skeet Shooter: A shotgun-wielding Duke blasts away at hallucinations that emerge on command from under his skull cap. Great for stoners, gun enthusiasts, and, of course, kids.

Plus much more!
The Doonesbury Screen Saver: the most fun you can have with your clothes on and still be at a computer terminal.
