An Ounce of Prevention

The following public service announcements were a regular sight during kid shows' commercial breaks on local stations throughout the 1980s and well into the 1990s. In the clips below, Bugs tells us of the dangers lurking in the kitchen, from pots of boiling water to dangling power cords; Daffy gives two kids a "burn-prevention quiz"; and Tweety reveals how the bathroom could be the most dangerous room in the house. These spots were actually excerpts taken from a 22 minute film made for the Shriners Burns Institute in 1982 called "An Ounce of Prevention". The new animation was produced by Hal Geer and directed by Gerry Chiniquy.

Does the entire 22-min film feature the Looney Tunes?
