The Childhood Years: Wash Behind Your Ears! (2-DVD Set)

The Childhood Years: Wash Behind Your Ears! (2-DVD set)

Do you remember your mother telling you to wash behind your ears or a patch of potatoes would start to grow there? How about being reminded to brush your teeth after every meal? These days we are bombarded by deodorant, toothpaste, soap and cleanser ads on a daily basis. Yet, you would be surprised that two generations ago hygiene in America was very poor! Running water was a novelty for much of America just 100 years ago! After World War II, advancing medical understanding made people realize that if America wanted to be healthy, everyone needed to keep clean!

So, during the 1940s, 50s and 60s a series of educational films were developed to teach America’s youth to keep germs at bay. This 2-DVD set contains the best, worst and funniest clips ever assembled. There is nothing dirty about this 2-DVD set!

We use the power of DVD technology to restore and preserve these classic clips forever!

The Childhood Years: Wash Behind Your Ears!

This Is The First Time This Historic Footage
Has Been Assembled On DVD!

Childhood is the best time to teach people anything. It is when we are ready to learn! That’s why these films were created to train a generation of American youth about the importance of cleanliness.

If you love classic films, remember your school health classes or just want to see how much America has changed over the past five decades, then you need to own The Childhood Years: Wash Behind You Ears on DVD today!

Learn How To Drive To Stay Alive!

These clips are not just limited to the use of soap and water! Keeping healthy is also a matter of instilling good habits into your life. That is why there are also clips about safe driving, the importance of immunization and how the government helped give poorer students a good hot lunch!

Cleanliness Is Important For Everyone!

We have also included a clip showing the difference between living standards between Caucasians in the suburbs and the poorer rural and urban African American community. The point is that no matter what your background, being clean and healthy is important for everyone!

Preventing the Spread of Disease
Our first clip, from 1940, is one of the first times that film was ever used to impart hygiene lessons. Because it was considered on the cutting edge of education technology, it is far less direct than later films. It uses images and metaphors rather than stating exactly why soap and water should be your best friend!
