Tralfaz Sunday Theatre—Emergency Numbers

Yes, times have changed. Here’s a short cartoon to prove it.

Today, we just programme emergency numbers in our cell phone. In 1984, you could bash in a window with one of those brick phones—if you owned one. Likely you had a phone button phone (more modern than those old dial things) and emergency numbers listed at the front of a nearby phone book.

This 1984 National Film Board animated short from Oscar winner John Weldon involves a cat and dog fight that also reminds us to keep emergency numbers close to our telephones.
