Country: USA
What it is: Public service driving safety cartoon

In the world of fairy tales, two demons (Carelessness and Discourtesy) escape from Pandora’s box and encourage residents to engage in reckless driving.

I was a bit surprised this cartoon was made during the thirties, as it has moments that feel like belongs to the psychedelic era of the sixties. Still, the style didn’t feel like the sixties either; in fact, it has rather a style of its own. This sense of style is what makes this cartoon rather fun; I quite enjoyed this despite its didactic quality. Worth checking out for those of us who like exploring the nooks and crannies of animation.
