See Industry And Government Working
Together To Sell Capitalism!

One of the most astonishing things about these animated advertising shorts is that not all of them were produced by the government. Many were produced by corporations – yet they still push the same message as federal propaganda films. Imagine big corporations pushing political agendas today! It just wouldn’t happen. These films are a fascinating lesson in how industry and government worked together to create the worship of money and productivity!

I Like IKE!

Also included on this incredible DVD is the original "I Like IKE" commercial put together to help President Eisenhower win the election in 1952. This ad – believe it or not – was produced by Roy Disney and also pushes for the election of future malcontent Richard Milhous Nixon for vice president! This is a truly historical gem!

The Stock Market As The Savior Of
The American Way Of Life!

Even more amazing than the other propaganda shorts are films that push the stock market as the best place to become rich. Think about that – America less than two decades before had been thrust into the Great Depression by the collapse of the stock market. Imagine what a hard sell it must have been to convince people to put their trust back into securities. This is amazing stuff!

 These Films Were Created By Some Of
The Best Production Houses Of Their Time!

This DVD has some of the great production houses of the era such as Roy Disney, Raphael Wolff and John Sutherland, providing glimpses of the marketing strategies used during that time.

This vintage collection of high quality movie clips is the finest collection of advertising history available, providing a valuable insight in to the marketing strategies implemented during this period. It is a great visual reference and study guide for students and teachers alike!

This Is Not Propaganda - These Are Some Of The Best
Animated Advertisements Ever Created!

This collection is one of the best ever compiled onto a single DVD. You will not believe the types of advertisements that corporations and the government were using during the 1950s! Here is a complete list of what you will see on this incredible DVD.



Eisenhower for President
This is the original "I Like IKE" animated commercial, produced by Roy Disney and Citizens for Eisenhower-Nixon during the 1952 presidential campaign. Not only will you like IKE, you will love the animation on this great clip!

Producer: Roy Disney

Audio: Mono
Color: BLACK & WHITE

Freedom and Power (1)
Freedom and electricity are the same thing. Who knew?? This opulently produced two part animated film defines freedom as the abundance of electric power, and reviews U.S. history from an electro-centric viewpoint. It shows the development and importance of electric power from Benjamin Franklin’s experiment with a kite to the contributions of Thomas Edison. Funny, isn’t it, that everyone who contributed to the development of electricity was American?

Producer: Wolff (Raphael G.) Studios, Inc.
Sponsor: General Electric Company
Year: 1952
Length: 00:13:31
Audio: Mono
Color: COLOR

Freedom and Power (1)

Freedom and Power (2)
The next track is part two of Freedom and Power. It continues the theme of the first film and demonstrates how the more electricity you have, the freer you are! Perhaps not surprisingly, both clips were produced by the General Electric Company.

What Makes Us Tick
This cartoon was produced by the New York Stock Exchange to encourage people to buy stock. It promotes the stock market as the engine of America’s prosperity. On a typical 1950’s day, typical cartoon dad John Q. Public comes home to his typical American family in his owned-by-the-bank car, and pauses to take pride in his mortgaged home. In the privacy of his den, John reflects on the insurance he’s paid for, his massive savings to cover emergencies, vacations, and Junior’s education, and yet he still he has money left to invest in the stock market! Isn’t America great?

Producer: Sutherland (John) Productions
Sponsor: New York Stock Exchange
Year: 1952

What Makes Us Tick

It’s Everybody’s Business
This U.S. Chamber Of Commerce Cold War-era cartoon links the Bill of Rights to free-enterprise ideology! Watch for the many scenes, created by John Sutherland, where anthropomorphized dollar bills run around frantically, and don’t miss the relentless, money-sucking tax monster. The Freedom Foundation awarded this film its gold honor medal as "the best film developed in the United States during 1954 to further a better understanding of the American way of life." In the spirit of spending as much money as possible, it was shot in Technicolor.

Destination Earth
Mars needs oil! In this American Petroleum Institute cartoon, Martian dissidents learn that oil and competition are the two things that make America great. This animated cartoon follows the adventures of "Colonel Cosmic" as he learns the strengths of American-style free enterprise economics, compared to a stagnating Mars under the fist of a certain communist-backed Mr. Ogg, who centrally controls the Martian economy.

Producer: John Sutherland Productions
Sponsor: American Petroleum Institute
Year: 1956

Working Dollars
The final clip is a New York Stock Exchange-financed animated explanation of how the stock market works, told through the story of the film’s hero, Mr. Finchley. Many people may have wondered how to go about owning a share of American business, or about the new "pay-as-you-go" Monthly Investment Plan. Or, perhaps they’d just like to know more about how the stock market works - about market opportunities and risks, stocks, bonds and dividends. If so, they would have found the adventures of Fred Finchley as one of the best ways to find out what goes on at the Stock Exchange. Capitalist propaganda at its finest!

EDITORIAL REVIEW:

What better way can there be of taking a peek at a country’s shifting policies, focus and direction than through some of the best-animated films on the subject? This unique set of DVDs does just that and keeps you riveted to your screens for hours on end with its humorous yet thought provoking contents.

With the worst of times behind it – a crushing economic disaster called the great depression and a resource-sapping world war – America’s theme, both federal and corporate was one of rebuilding. Over and above the need for making available affordable housing and commodities such as cars and television sets, there was a conscious effort to build the nation’s image as a powerful capitalist heaven and thus silence communist detractors forever.

Great production houses such as Roy Disney, Raphael Wolff and John Sutherland achieved this through some fascinating animated features. While attempting to reinstate people’s faith in the stock market, corporates also took it upon themselves the task of supporting Eisenhower and Nixon in their race for the presidential and vice presidential elections.

Humorous, innovative and ingeniously produced, these animated shorts provide a thrilling study of the United States at the height of the Cold War.

If history interests you and animation fascinates you grab your copy of this fabulous DVD toady. It has hours of entertainment and loads of information.
