Title: Junk food reel
Film Description: Educational Animated footage depicting the evils of junk food with a sinister candy merchant known as "Mitreat". Explanation that Mitreat is worst than a garbage man because he profits by selling us his junk. He also steals your appetitite for nutritious food by filling you up. Excellent educational points include the demonization of white flour and white sugar which actually robs your body of nutrients. "What makes junk food junky" includes its use of artificial flavors, additives, and lack of nutrients.
Uses much symbolism and ditties filled with ryhme. Depicts human body as a machine that Mitreat causes to malfuction. Contrasts that depiction with a machine fueled by healthy food including milk, yogurt, cheese, fruits and vegetables.
In the end children reject the junk food man and he is thrown in
a trash can. He eventually puts a "going out of business"
sign on his Goodies truck and takes off.
