"Popular Misconceptions" -- a forgotten series

Postby angilbas » Fri Aug 19, 2011 11:24 pm

"Popular Misconceptions" was a series of animated bumpers, each of which ran about as long as an average commercial with the intent of correcting common myths. The opening titles featured a pair of spinning cog wheels, and a pseudo-British accent characterized the narration. The art was simple made-for-TV stuff; the animation was limited.

Topics included the Canary Islands (named after their wild dogs, not songbirds), and Hitler as Schicklegruber. I saw the series on only one channel -- CFCF-TV 12 for a few years beginning in 1965 after my family moved to the Montreal area.
