Storyline

In this propaganda short, the viewers are taught about how the mosquito can spread malaria. A young mosquito flies into a house and consumes the blood of an infected human. She then consumes the blood of a healthy human, transmitting the disease into him. It turns out that this is actually a film within a film and the Seven Dwarves are watching it. They volunteer to get rid of the mosquito by destroying her breeding grounds. Written by Coolguy

Ew!
15 August 2004 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

For the love of God, don't watch this while eating dinner. I made that fatal mistake. It's not a pleasant cartoon, it's a nasty little public service announcement warning of the dangers of mosquito breeding in your back yard. If you're quite squeamish when it comes to bugs (as I am) it'll make you completely paranoid.

The horrid detail it goes into, especially the cross section close-ups of a mosquito biting some guy, really give you the heebie-jeebies. A good thing the Seven Dwarfs are so obsessed with cleaning up and totally eliminate every possible mosquito breeding ground from their home. According to this short they can breed almost anywhere. Needless to say, I cleaned my kitchen and bathroom right after watching this, while struggling to keep my dinner down.
