Also available

This hilarious short animation offers over 40 safety tips for homes with infants and young children. The film's hero is a very earnest, somewhat pompous, but endearing dog called Wally. A "professional" in home safety, Wally is assigned to a house with an infant whose parents have little safety consciousness. Accidents and near-accidents succeed each other with lightning speed, constantly putting Wally to the test.

    It took me many years to retrieve this video. I didn’t remember the title because I watched the French version, 25 years ago, But unfortunately, I am not able to retrieve the French version that played in Super Écran.

    I'm so happy to have found this movie online! I saw it when first released and LOVED it! My friends thought I was so-much like Waldo, that I gained the nickname "Safety Pup"!
