Sunday Cinema – Smoking

Smoking

 

With school fast approaching (yea for parents!), the jokers at Junkiosity thought it might be fun to take a look at some old educational movies that we LOVED to watch back in school (we say LOVED because it meant we could either sleep or mess around with little intervention from the teachers). Some are sponsored by big corporations, others not-so-much.

Touted as a rare find, this animated anti-smoking educational film came out back in 1981 to share with kids the dangers of smoking. Now I wonder how many of the animators & directors were smokers while this was being made… Someone found this forgotten gem and posted it online for all to see…

Sunday Cinema – Hygiene

Another late-1980’s educational film aimed at teaching children the importance of hygiene and was targeting elementary school students. Someone found this old copy and transferred it so that others can enjoy the kitschy-ness of it…

Sunday Cinema – Crack

With school fast approaching (yea for parents!), the jokers at Junkiosity thought it might be fun to take a look at some old educational movies that we LOVED to watch back in school (we say LOVED because it meant we could either sleep or mess around with little intervention from the teachers). Some are sponsored by big corporations, others not-so-much.

Produced in 1987, this educational film came out when crack cocaine had become an epidemic across the country. Haunting images from movies like “New Jack City” showing people stoning out in alleys & abandoned buildings or offering to suck d*ck for it not only showed some truth, but also used it as a scare tactic.

Interesting to note that the boy in the movie went on to co-star in a few B-movies, ultimately leaving the acting world to become a teacher in California. Someone posted this online so that others can learn about the lie that is CRACK!
