Storyline

Tommy is an average teenager, but he can't punctuate worth a darn, and doesn't see any need to worry about it. He writes a letter to his father that is completely devoid of any punctuation at all. His dad thinks it's humorous, but begins to worry about Tommy, because his letters will soon be read by "more critical correspondents." As if to drive the point home, two teenage girls read a letter Tommy had written and laugh uproariously at it, dismissing the writer as "childish" and saying that is exactly how girls would consider him. However, they soon read a letter from Tommy that is correctly punctuated, and begin to smile and swoon about what a "right guy" he is. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Yeah, why?

I noted right away that the title was not properly punctuated. Centron sometimes didn't punctuate their titles correctly, although this is the worst example, they are doing a film instructing children to punctuate correctly and the title right off the bat is not punctuated! This is probably the first step of the films after the boring sewing series that were greatly entertaining. Also, Centron has just expanded their company, hiring a few workers. Other than Russell A. Mosser and Arthur H. Wolf, the two friends who started Centron in 1947, cameraman Norman Stuewe, editor Chuck Lacey, writer Margaret "Trudy" Travis and director Harold "Herk" Harvey (who would later direct the full-lengh feature "Carnival of Souls" on a vacation from Centron) were on staff at Centron beginning in 1948 and the company evolved around these six who started out this company by the time the company had expanded to many people in the 1960s and 1970s. "Why Punctuate" is an example of how these new staff brought magic to these films from 1948 on.
