This quirky film educates young drivers to try to share the road with bicyclists. We follow the growth of Lisa from a pig-tailed bicyclist to a teen driver who now must tolerate unpredictable bike-riders. GM likes bikes too! It's narrated by Jim Stringer - who did much of the music for Centron Films in the late 1970s and 1980s.

This film uses a childs curiosity about animals to convey its messages. Young Helen learns that she cleans herself just like her cat Kitty does. Unfortunately, Helen doesnt pick up on the fact the Kitty doesn't like to be groped by a room full of grimy school children. Films featuring animals and young children are usually as torturous to watch, as they were to make.
