Storyline

An animated bike named Ike explains the safety hazards of bikes, chanting "I like bikes" as he moves through various settings, then following live-action bike riders. One falls over in the street and is nearly hit by Lisa's parents. Ike then narrates Lisa's interest in bikes through to her teenage years when she gets a car to see if she can be attentive now that she's not using hers as much.

A Hunka-Hunk of Funky 70's Cheese!
3 July 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie can be seen on the 'Educational Archives: Driver's Ed' DVD. (Put out by Fantoma and available on good old Amazon.com.)

The copy of the film used for the DVD appears to be heavily scratched-up and worn-out, but for all we know, its the last copy on earth.

What I found interesting about this movie is, apart from the narration, its basically a silent movie. All the other music and even sound-effects are done with one of those cheesy Moog synthesizers. (70's synthesizers were more of a real instrument than today's; You still had to be able to PLAY them. Nothing was sampled or programmed, as far as I know.) Whoever scored this short film was an amazing player-I hope they went on to have a successful career as a musician!

That soundtrack combined with a sing-song rhyming narration, funky animation, and the great colorful clothing and decor of the 70's, make this a fun little film long after you've finished your own Driver's Ed class!
