This videotape consists of four animated films: Easy Does It, Winky the Watchman, Cleanliness Brings Health, and The Winged Scourge. The first film, Easy Does It, (1946--25 min.) is an advertisement for Stokely foods. Based on the premise that quality canned foods sell in grocery stores, the film follows the process of growing, canning, and marketing food. The second film, Winky the Watchman, (1950s--10 min.) begins with children visiting the dentist's office. The dentist relates the story of Winky the watchman whose job it is to guard the fortress wall of teeth. When Winky falls asleep, the "badums" of tooth decay decide to invade. Winky wakes up just in time to rally the "goodums" to save the wall. The third film, Cleanliness Brings Health, (1944--16 min.) is a Walt Disney production made for the United States Information Agency for use in Latin America. The film compares a "happy" family with a "careless" family and focuses on cleanliness in food preparation, houses, sewage, and other sanitary issues. The fourth film, The Winged Scourge, (1944--10 min.) is about the malaria mosquito. The film describes malaria, how it is transferred to humans, and how it can be prevented.
