Fantoma Presents this special Four Volume DVD Set in a Limited Edition Metal Lunchbox, complete with working Thermos!

Generations of American children sat in dark classrooms and absorbed wisdom in the form of 16mm educational and social guidance films. Through the flicker of dim projector bulbs and the warble of optical soundtracks a blueprint for better living in the atomic age was spelled out in no uncertain terms. Now, just as you remember them, a special collection of rare educational films, ranging in date from the late 1940s to the early 1980s. Some historical, some hysterical and all filled with more important misinformation than you can digest in one viewing.

Volume One: Sex and Drugs- Learn all about the dangers of marijuana, the perils of heavy petting, and difference between boys and girls and the joys of menstruation. Films include: LSD: Insight or Insanity, It's Wonderful Being a Girl, Narcotics: Pit of Despair, and Marijuana (with Sonny Bono).

Volume Two: Social Engineering 101- Discover how to fit in, keep clean, choose between right and wrong, and behave yourself in the cafeteria. Films include: Lunchroom Manners, Soapy the Germ Fighter, The Outsider, Why Doesn't Cathy Eat Breakfast? and Shy Guy.

Volume Three: Driver's Ed- In the 1940s and 50s American faced a threat even more frightening than the Bomb: teenagers with cars. Discover how we dealt with this new and terrible threat. Films include: The Last Prom, Joyride, The Bottle and the Throttle, Safety Belt for Susie, Tomorrow's Drivers (narrated by Jimmy Stewart) and The Talking Car.

Volume Four: On the Job- Learn about workplace safety, the insidious nature of office gossip, and how to fire someone without being shot. Films include: Shake Hands with Danger, The Grapevine, Promotion By-Pass, The Trouble with Women, How to Keep a Job, and When You Grow Up.
