Himself - Narrator (voice)


Ten youth, all close friends, decide to cycle to a park nine blocks away to have a picnic lunch. As they proceed on their journey, they have to remember and pay attention to the many aspects of being a responsible cyclist and bicycle owner. These aspects include using correct hand signals to signify cycling intention, obeying traffic signs and signals, keeping to the correct side of the street, registering one's bicycle by licensing it, riding one person to a bicycle, not riding on sidewalks where prohibited and yielding to pedestrians wherever riding on sidewalks is allowed, keeping one's bicycle in good working order by having it tuned whenever required, and having lights and/or reflectors for dark situations which includes riding through unlit tunnels during the day. Acting the responsible human or the irresponsible "monkey" will affect who of the ten will arrive safely if at all to the park for the picnic. Written by Huggo

The finest surrealist bike-safety film ever inadvertently made
26 November 2002 | by (Spokane, WA) – See all my reviews

Someone set out to make a cute, humorous little film to teach the kiddies about bike safety.

What came out the other end was a bizarre and disturbing surrealist vision of a world gone mad.

Kids in cheap ape masks getting run down by cars and steamrollers accompanied by cartoon explosions and "boing" effects, all narrated with relentless chipperness by the great Edward Everett Horton.

It's just weird.
