I'm No Fool With Birth Control
21 April 2016 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

This animated short was produced by Walt Disney for the Population Council, a think tank formed by the Rockefeller Foundation with John Foster Dulles. It does a lot of research on sexually transmitted diseases and, as you might expect, birth control -- here, referred to by the milder term of family planning.

This short is a lecture on the benefits of smaller families. True, Donald Duck appears on the screen, carrying various props to mishandle, for the audience's amusement with a familiar figure. However, that is merely to get the audience into seats to listen. It was the first time something like this would be used; clear similarities to World War Two shorts are evoked. However, the cautious, guarded language and the care taken to point out that there are a lot of different types of people and the couple used are there to stand in for everyone -- he seems to be a Bavarian farmer and she a Hindu woman; goodness knows how they got together -- make it clear that this was not a carefully thought out production.
