Storyline

The brochures in a travel agency come to life. After a series of quick gags (flying fish in airplanes, a wave washing swimmers out to sea and back, etc). , there's a musical interlude featuring a tuba from Cuba. Two Hungary boys are lured by the Cook Island; they grab the Twin Forks from Montana, and add Turkey to their plates, then stop by the Sandwich Islands, Hamburg, Chili, Oyster Bay, and finally a cup of Java. A thief from Bagdad visits the Kimberly Diamond Mines, but awakes a sleeping baby, who Wales. This alerts Central (America), who calls Radio City, which contacts all countries. A group of bobbies, Mounties, Scotland Yard, and others pursue, while the thief is visiting a Pawnee shop. He tries to hide in the fog of London, but it's blown away by a windmill. A dude ranch hand ropes him, then drags him through the Red, Black, and Yellow Seas, and onto the back of the Lone Stranger's horse. They ride off, noting that he's not alone any more. (There is reportedly another ... Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Trivia

Little America (around 2:27) was a series of exploration bases on the Ross Ice Shelf in Antarctica. The gag here is that it was hardly a pleasure destination for tourists. See more »

There's lots to see in the world.

Watching "You're an Education" in the 21st century, it's probably most recognizable that many of the images are pretty racist. As long as we understand that, it's OK to luxuriate in the cartoon itself. This was one of many shorts portraying inanimate objects (books, food, clothes) coming to life. In this case, travel brochures interact with each other, until the Thief of Baghdad steals some diamonds from Transvaal. There are plenty of jokes along the way: the Russian Steppes are a staircase, the Cape of Good Hope is a real cape, and Italy turns into a boot.

So, it's an OK time. But just realize that some of the images are pretty racist.
