So Much For So LIttle
Boing Boing posted this 1949 animated short, which at 10 minutes is actually just a little longer than most shorts of the era, made by Warner Bros. for the U.S. Federal Security Agency Public Health Service. Chuck Jones directed, and Carl Stalling did the music. It provides an interesting peek into the post-war era. While its message is very serious, and some of its numbers are sobering, the cartoon is still entertaining while obviously aimed at persuading the public to support public health services. Here is So Much For So Little.
