Subject: A Trip (on a Bike) to the Past
It may not be sophisticated enough for young people today, but the message about safety on the road is timeless.

Note to Twang Guru: I love your music and wish you and your ARP would send a cassette of it to me. That's right, a cassette. How much?
Subject: A correction
As for the "schmaltz" factor, it's totally goofy... most of this genre were VERY goofy. As far as calling this a "psa" -- believe it or not, this was a relatively high budget thing. Not quite as high as our commercial and PR pieces, but several times what we'd spend on the ordinary educational piece. This film was originally to have NO narration -- just music. Little by little, the narration was added until it was virtually wall to wall.
The animation was simple, but was done by Oscar Rojas, a very talented artist and cartoonist of Cuban descent who worked for Centron for many years. Other Centron personelle pop up as actors in various places, too.
