Subject: This is your Play-Doh on drugs!
Subject: Thank goodness.
The year was 1982, friends, and this movie scared the hell out of me. Yes, I was a wussy girl, but the dang peg-leg tooth and the demon tooth decay... let's just say I would have appreciated the comic value of this film 11 years later, possibly with the help of some weed.
Oddly, I only remember the beginning of it. While it's possible that my young, traumatized mind blocked it out, it's also entirely possible that I got so freaked out that I was removed from the classroom.
Second grade also marked my first meeting with a psychiatrist. Take that any way you want to. :)
Subject: an anti-cavity film that will blow your mind....
Subject: You guys are never going to believe this...
Anyway, I've been using the Internet, not just computers, since 1989/1990, having gotten my first computer in 1982. I have been able to hunt down everything I've ever wanted on the Internet, from songs I heard only once on the radio but never forgot to television shows that only I seem to remember, etc.
This was the absolutely LAST thing I had not been able to track down from my childhood on the Internet. Until now. It is the single earliest memory of moving media. While it is, after all, just a campy video about the perils of tooth decay, it oddly represents something much more to me- a chance to watch a 10 minute film I saw 28 years ago but never forgot. A chance to take the earliest, vaguest memory as a child of a moving picture and re-watch it all these years later.
Subject: holy cow!!
Subject: Just DANDY to have around...
I give this 5 stars, because the colors make me feel happy inside...
Subject: anti-cavity cartoon
Subject: ripe for the parodying
Subject: Jack Skellington has nothing on Jack Sweet
Now, if my teeth have faces and mouths, then do my teeth have teeth, and so on? This leads me to believe that drugs would enhance the enjoyment of this film.
Subject: If you've thought you've seen it all...
A land of happy go lucky teeth get a stranger, who is happy to give out candy! Then the stranger turns nasty, using some sort of plier thingy to try to rot their minds (literally). One of the teeth goes away to find a tooth oldtimer, with a gold crown and, yes, a wooden leg, who tells junior tooth about the 4 food groups (each of them have their own annoying little ditty). Soon, the tooth comes back to confront Mr. Tooth decay, only to be nearly defeated! Luckily, Old timer tooth shows up with a giant tube of toothpaste which gobs Mr. Tooth decay all up! "I'll be back!" Mr Tooth decay warns us. Yes, but WHEN???????
Honestly, all of that happens.
Filled with trippy music, clumsy claymation, and a druggy story, this is one for the ages. Just about nearly topples that Skanapagalapos Part 2 or whatever that was on one of Skip's 'Huh?' tapes for sheer claymation weirdness. A MUST SEE on this site.
