Check out this fun – but informative – 1963 film on why not following safe cycling rules even once can end up in disaster, entitled “One Got Fat”. A group of monkey-masked kids decide to ride their bikes to the park for a picnic. Along the way, one by one, the kids are knocked out of the ride due to careless or unsafe riding.

Narration by Edward Everett Horton of “Fractured Fairytales” (Old Rocky and Bullwinkle) fame.


This was shot in the fifties but the message is still sound. Shot in Glendale and Burbank, California by a family-owned film production company. Encourages boys and girls to “drive their bicycles” and prepare for becoming automobile drivers by learning to practice the “rules of the road.”
