Things Ain't What They Used to Be.....Thank Goodness, 3 February 2015
Author: Hitchcoc from United States

I'm rating this a 9 because it is so hilarious, so out of the norm, that it actually works. In 1963 there were these weird public service announcements that were designed to scare the crap out of little kids. A group of monkey/kids (actual children with monkey tails and monkey masks) each do something wrong with their bikes, leading to death or mutilation. Each has a bag lunch with his or her name on it, and as they are destroyed, there is a close-up of their lunch bag. Edward Everett Horton, one of the most famous voice over guys of his time (remember "Fractured Fairy Tales) narrates in his kind of happy way as the bikers are being annihilated. This is truly a representation of adult scare tactics. Yet, as an historical piece, it is really interesting.
