Storyline

A mother and father are watching a documentary program on television which presents the hazards children face in the home. On the program, there is an animated morality sequence where Mrs. Hazard welcomes children into her home so that they can play and explore among the many things which could potentially harm or even kill them, such as sharp objects and poisonous household chemicals. Dr. Harry F. Dietrich, a researcher of child accidents, then reports that more children are killed by accidents in the home from these such hazards than from leading childhood diseases, and that parents need to be vigilant to keep their homes a safe place for their children. This mother and father believe they are doing a good job keeping their home safe for their infant daughter, but the host of the television program, who talks to them directly through their television screen, guides them through their home to show them what they are doing well and what they are doing not so well in protecting her ...

The Idiot Box Tells You What to Do
30 June 2013 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Even if you are a moron, you will be insulted by this short subject urging parents not to keep ant poison where your kiddies can get at them easily. After the cartoon start, we shift to a domestic scene, where the television addresses a young couple directly on the risks to their children in the person of a grim Reed Hadley and a droning Doctor Harry Dietrich. Many of these home safety movies are ridiculous and will be ignored because they are aimed at children, urging them to not do things that many of them would never have thought of -- but once mentioned, sound really cool, particularly the scars. This one will be ignored because it treats adults as morons.
