Turtles, Cartoons, and 1950s Fear-Mongering

Does the above picture scare you? Well, try watching this YouTube video . It's a cartoon from the Civil Defense Administration, released in the 1950s to protect schoolchildren from an atomic bomb. It's so cute. I'm glad I wasn't a kid back then. It's no wonder our parents are so scared. (Just kidding, Mom.) Props (again) to Rolling Stone for uncovering this gem.
