Hanna-Barbera Makes Me Want to Do Drugs

And here I thought I had seen all the funky PSAs the ’60s and ’70s had to offer. I’m not sure how effective this 1970 public service announcement from Hanna-Barbera was at keeping kids off drugs, but even if it didn’t it’s still the coolest thing that bunch of hacks ever produced.

Let’s break this thing down, shall we?

“Match”? I’d say that box has more than one, wouldn’t you?

Smoke ’em if you got ’em!

(I do not endorse the use of illegal drugs.)

That’s either one hell of a doobie or the stink of patchouli on this kid is so strong it’s formed a force field.

We’re almost one-third of the way through, and all this makes me want to do is get seriously stoned.

(But seriously, I still do not endorse the use of illegal drugs.)

Aw, that’s nice, stoner dude and the pills are holding hands. I still fail to see the danger here.

Aaaand scene!

So there you have it, boys and girls. The moral of the story? Smoking pot and popping pills is really fun, but if you stop doing it your hair turns green and you have to hang out with the closet zombies.
