Trippy 1971 Alice in Wonderland-themed anti-drug PSA makes drugs look AWESOME

Curious Alice

Curious Alice was an anti-drug PSA made back in 1971 by the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare. Its message is somehow lost through all the cool animations and funs.

The film shows Alice as she toured a strange land where everyone had chosen to use drugs, forcing Alice to ponder whether drugs were the right choice for her. The “Mad Hatter” character represents Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD), the “Dormouse” represents sleeping pills, and the “King of Hearts” represents heroin.

Yeah, I would file this one under the “failing miserably” [Dials drug dealer].



With thanks again to WFMU
