Leopold, the Abjad and Duck and Cover

I could give you a list of the cognitive associations that led me to choose these three clips, in this order, but I shan't:



with thanks to John Wells:

Very interesting.. I remember the 1st one. The third I either saw or one just like it when I was very young. The 2nd i like even though I do not understand one word. It serves to help us remember we are all innocent children, no matter what culture and what god.
The first two really shows that era,, a silly cartoon followed by a training film that scared the hell out of kids. Saw one at breakfast then go to school and see the warning. Plus what good was leaning up, under anything lol

Your cognitive processes almost as bizarre as my own!

Yes, but you knew that already... :)

The third video was interesting. I love turtles. I didn't know they were used to teach duck & cover. Kinda cute. :)
