The Truth Behind Cancer

Author Comments

Finally, Wighead Films has uncovered a true treasure in their Wighead Films library; A cartoon produced in the early 50's by Minston Cigarettes in which Professor Smart guides us through the reality behind cancer and cigarettes.

EDIT: This movie is in no way against gays, cancer victims, or even professors; it's merely a satire on "educational" films from the 50s and the ignorance depicted in them. If the title alone makes you cringe, then please don't watch it, let alone, leave a review.

Great stuff!

It's nice that I unearthed this well done flash. The animation is really well done, especially for a satire/parody (loved how the characters were drawn) and I could also tell you (probably) got that "death stick" thing from Star Wars. Anyway, I thought it was pretty funny with the politician yelling, especially when the prostitute was mentioned.

Fun and educational

Good take on the old 50s films (although these types of jokes have been done to death already). Animation was very fluid and I got a good chuckle outta of it too. Good job.

lies lies lies

lulz lulz lulz

(( Awsome ))

lol this was great but it was funny because of how you set it up, and some amazing graphics, very nice animation and glad to see you won some awards aswell, so very nice efort on this one.

its perfect.

great flash awsome graphics and very funny



I have seen many a satire on old educational films, however this piece was expertly done. Over the top-yet not outside the realm of possibility; especially in contemporary society. Bravo!
