Puppet Show Teaches Traffic Laws (Jun, 1938)

Puppet Show Teaches Traffic Laws

THE ancient art of puppetry has been enlisted by the Bureau of Public Safety of Detroit, Mich., in a novel campaign to cut the accident toll of modern traffic. A play—”Stop, Look and Listen”— enacted by marionettes, is being shown at all of the city’s schools in an effort to impress children with safety rules. The cast of marionettes features a policeman, a teacher, children, stop lights, and traffic in the form of model automobiles, which are actuated by motor-driven belts.

    So far as I can tell the policeman marionette is beating himself over the head in sheer frustration at trying to teach the young blockheads when not to step into traffic.
