I have seen quite a few films sponsored by The National Film Board of Canada that are trying to teach some important lesson. Unfortunately, most of them are pretty boring and preachy. In light of this, I was thrilled when I say this film about proper table etiquette.
The film is narrated by a stodgy sounding lady who is very proper and explains lessons about proper behavior during a dinner party. However, at the same time, grotesquely drawn characters act out what she is saying in a very funny manner. Some of their actions are very vulgar but too often they take the message too literally. It's all very tongue-in-cheek and works very well--especially since kids watching this fun cartoon will actually learn not to be total slobs. So, they learn something AND have a good laugh--now that's very clever!
