Disney Ephemera: "The Story of Menstruation" (1946)

Part of an ongoing series of anything Walt Disney Productions-involved, it's a proven fact the Disney studio was in the many facets of education for as long as we've been on this planet, and now we're just feeling the side-effects of such corporate retooling and just waking out of our shells to see the real truth behind it all. This series is about reliving these things (call it nostalgia for some).

This little number was seen by many a school girl during the middle 20th Century when it was that time of their lives to be told these things (the boys on the other hand were forced to play basketball in the gym or push-ups outside and did not know any of this had transpired). Witness the boredom and radiant glory that is... The Story of Menstruation.

I've never been able to show this all the way through at HELL. Everybody's just too squeamish.

Heh, I guess hearing those words still produces giggles! I can do one up on VD Attack Plan later if you like. Had a few different examples to sort through like "What Should I Do?" or that one of Winnie the Pooh learning about the seasons or the "ABC's of Hand Tools".

VD Attack Plan has never made it to the end, either. My version is the one they showed to the military. Not the toned down version that was sent to high schools. Some really scare-you-and-scar-you pictures in that military version.

They do. At least they were trying to make you aware while on duty!

Then again, I was showing it at a convention. Maybe it actually did what it was created to do?
