Hazard House (1954)
11min · Animation, Short, Drama · 1 January 1954
A mother and father are watching a documentary program on television which presents the hazards children face in the home. On the program, there is an animated morality sequence where Mrs. Hazard welcomes children into her home so that they can play and explore among the many things which could potentially harm or even kill them, such as sharp objects and poisonous household chemicals. Dr. Harry F. Dietrich, a researcher of child accidents, then reports that more children are killed by accidents in the home from these such hazards than from leading childhood diseases, and that parents need to be vigilant to keep their homes a safe place for their children. This mother and father believe they are doing a good job keeping their home safe for their infant daughter, but the host of the television program, who talks to them directly through their television screen, guides them through their home to show them what they are doing well and what they are doing not so well in protecting her from potential household hazards.
