Ever wonder what Up! might have looked like if it was made in 1965? No, not by Disney’s 2D artists, but as a live-action vehicle for Spencer Tracy? I didn’t think so, but since it’s Tuesday and maybe you’re in the mood for some content that’s not Oscar-related, we’ve gone ahead and embedded it below.

Part of the popular YouTube meme of “premakes”, Spencer Tracy’s Up! is a delightful goofy/nostalgic "what if" that’s well worth a look. I especially enjoy wilderness explorer Kevin and man’s best friend Dug, but there’s plenty more that make this more than just a zany premise. And if you enjoyed this, the same geniuses that put it together have a whole slew of ‘em on YouTube. Funny how realistic it seems. Take a look…
