Interesting Short Feature
16 July 2001 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

This was the first of many short features that star George O'Hanlon as Joe McDoakes, a typical American, as he deals with various aspects of everyday life. In this one, Joe decides to give up smoking, and tries every possible method, even sending in money for a quick-fix mail order cure. Art Gilmore's narration focuses mostly on the humorous aspects of Joe's generally futile efforts, although there are some serious points too. It's a pretty interesting short film, with some light humor and not without some practical tips for those in Joe's situation.
