Cartoon Summary:

The animated story of a very talented and troubled family starting with 19th century Russia and moving through several generations of musicians. From a turn-of-the-century immigrant vaudevillian to a rock superstar, this is the story of four generations whose lives revolve around the beat of American popular music. The film covers American music from the pre-jazz age through soul, 1950s rock, drug-laden psychedelia and punk, finally ending with the onset of new wave in the early 1980s.
