Driving in America: 1950

Disney’s perspective of driving in 1950. Goofy stars as a Jekyll and Hyde character, Mr. Walker/Mr. Wheeler. When he’s a pedestrian he’s mild-mannered and rational; when he’s a driver he’s mad and bad.

It’s amazing to see that the issues we faced over half a century ago haven’t gotten any better. Video posted by our friend Carlton Reid of QuickRelease.TV.

    This was hilarious. Thanks for posting! So many good bits in there. And dare I say that motorists aren’t the only Hydes out there…

    Don’t get bitter when you’re behind the bars! 🙂

    I remember this cartoon, they used to show it on the Disney Channel when my kids were young. I often think about it when we write about road rage these days, how it’s nothing new. I don’t know what it is about getting behind the wheel of a car that has always had this effect on people.

    I used that cartoon when I taught traffic school in So.Cal. I thought it was hokey but in retrospect, it is right on!
