Storyline

This educational film emphasizes the importance of good grooming and personal hygiene habits. Clothes should always appear clean and neat, and should be appropriate to the classroom setting. (Inappropriate dress makes you uncomfortable and conspicuous, not a good thing!) The functions of the skin are examined in scientific detail. Methods for cleaning the skin are demonstrated. Besides maintaining skin and body health, good grooming habits will help you "fit in" in various social situations, and may even help a gal attract a boyfriend! Written by yortsnave

Quotes

Narrator: [addressing a character in the short] But wait a minute, young lady. How did you get into this picture? You see, we're trying to prove a point about nature and beauty and... you're not exactly helping, you know. Look at your hair. Look at that blouse. And the way that skirt hangs. And those socks. Sorry, there must have been a mistake. You don't seem the to be exactly the type to make this guy behave like a human being.

they finally made something as boring as watching paint dry
25 September 2013 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

Another so-called educational film starring a bunch of pasty white people. The topic of "Body Care and Grooming" is personal hygiene, and it's the sort of movie that will likely make anyone want to ditch hygiene as an act of defiance.

Sure enough, "Mystery Science Theater 3000" tears it to shreds. There's a "Psycho" reference and sexual stuff added. I keep wondering if, when these shorts first got made, people heckled them like the Satellite of Love crew does. Even if a lot of the country was trying to be really wholesome, someone had to have laughed at the movie's mindless optimism. As the "MST3K" showed, doing so would be the only way to avoid going crazy while watching this crap.
