5.0 out of 5 stars Beware of Talking Hot Dogs! 24 Jan 2002
By "plumbinsane" - Published on
Man, this is one of the best DVDs I've purchased in a long time. Most of the dialogue from "Narcotics: Pit of Despair" is just BEGGING to be sampled. And it's got the guy from "Freaks and Geeks" in it!!! And where else can you see Sonny Bono (in a gold lame` suit, no less!) telling kids the dangers of marijuana "in their own language". This MUST'VE bee some kind of community service he had to do, or something...There is also a rad case study of some girl's acid trip where her hot dog starts screaming when she tries to eat it, so she squishes/"kills" it. Dunno, that sounds kind of fun to me...

4.0 out of 5 stars Check your focus... 11 Dec 2001
By David V. Matthews - Published on
This is a campy collection of films, true, but a collection that provides a detailed look at a bygone era's increasingly futile attempts at quashing youthful rebellion.
Unfortunately, seven of the twelve films here are "condensed"--i.e., edited to keep the DVD's running time under two hours and thus (presumably) keep the price affordable. This collection still provides much cinematic pleasure, though true edufilm fans should see the complete versions of such classics as MARIJUANA (narrated by a zonked-out Sonny Bono) and NARCOTICS: PIT OF DESPAIR (the only film here I actually saw in school; I never forgot the cobra scenes). At least the DVD presents the uncut version of the proto-Lynchian ABC OF SEX EDUCATION FOR TRAINABLES.
Maybe Fantoma will release these films uncondensed on DVD someday.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Big Kick In The Head 10 May 2005
By Andre S. Grindle - Published on
What makes these films so enjoyable for me is that when they were made,they were intended as dead serious educational material.HA!Maybe that's why they're so facinating now or,at the very worst,surreal fodder.Some films are hilerious and laughable,such as a case study on LSD in which a girl trips that a hot dog turns into a troll.Others are just bizzare-such as Sonny Bono trying to make clear the good and bad about marijuana even while he behaves as if he himself is stoned.A couple of the films are rather dull such as the boring classroom instructional 'Human Growth' and some are actually pretty serious warnings about the dangers of syphillis and sex education for mentally challaged adults.And not to be missed is 50's movie star Sal Mineo's bizzare song at the end of the

smug 'LSD-Insight Or Insanity'.These are really fun if your looking for a good laugh at the absurdity of youth education of the day,or if your just into weird propaganda.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blast Off For Kicksville... 4 Mar 2005
By Eyes and Teeth - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Educational Archives and Fantoma have produced a real gem here. This is seriously one of the most hilarious things I have ever seen. Some people actually doubt the validity of these archival 16mm prints due to their outlandish and ridiculously amusing nature. Even if you don't like drugs, you can not help from laughing at these amazing filmstrips. My personal faves are the Lockhead-Martin produced educational shorts (containing cool oil lamp visuals, beatnik-speak, and groovy music) espousing the dangers of LSD, amphetamines, heroin, and barbituates. The hipster slang in some of these shorts is incredible. The insightful film about Marijuana, narrated by Sonny Bono is a scream, as Sonny looks glorious in his gold jump suit and glazed eyes. 'Sex-Ed for Trainables' must be seen to be believed. This DVD never ceases to amuse me or my friends. Everyone who has watched this baby has found it to be completly hilarious. I have seen all of the other 'Educational Archive' DVDs, and this one takes the cake. There's a reason this is Volume 1. These short films range in date from the late 40's thru the early 70's. If you are a fan of the quirky, kitchy, or strange, you will love this. If you don't have a sense of humor, you may not (but I don't care about you). It's hard to believe that these shorts were shown to the youth in an attempt to scare them from doing drugs. If anything, these filmstrips make one want to experiment (especially the Amphetamine short). This DVD is highly reccomended to those seeking kicks. Don' be a square and cop this now, Daddy-O

5.0 out of 5 stars Woo-Hoo ...! 20 Dec 2002
By A Customer - Published on
I worked in Antarctica for seven months, and for some reason we had this dvd in our library at the station. We watched it about once a week. It's a riot. "Trainables" is one of the oddest pieces of "film" I have ever seen. Why have the huge close-ups of the presenter when he's got a horribly pock-marked face?
It's a fun ride. Good to see some early Kevin Teague before Emergency and Road House.
