This has got to be my favourite “National Film Board” movie of all time. What was meant as a somewhat serious short film on common domestic accidents and how to prevent them has quickly became our favourite funny movie as kids. To be fair, they do also advertise the movie as an hilarious documentary on their website.
Here is a snippet from the ONF:
This hilarious animated film communicates over forty safety tips for homes with infants and young children. The film’s hero is a very earnest, somewhat pompous, but endearing dog called Wally. A “professional” in home safety, Wally is assigned to a house with an infant whose parents have little safety consciousness. Accidents and near-accidents succeed each other with lightning speed, constantly putting Wally to the test. This comic film will help viewers of all ages become “home-safety smart.” For parents, babysitters, and the elementary school classroom.
Finally, I found out that you can get your very own copy of this classic movie on the ONF website. It is part of the movie “Attention, les enfants!”, which sells for about 20$ on their website. Unfortunately, it is a VHS-only movie. So no DVDs… Check out the trailer from the movie! Too funny! All of the texts I linked to can be found in English also.
