Cub Lineup

"The little 49cc-engined Honda Super Cub is the most-produced motorcycle in the world. It debuted in 1958, and since then more than 50 million Honda Cubs have been sold worldwide, primarily in Asia and Europe. And it's still in production today!
Aoshima's collection of 1/24 scale die-cast Cubs features eight different types plus two "secret items," for a total of ten possible types. Each motorcycle comes with a data card."

Aoshima has introduced the full Super Cub lineup in its toy division.
Naturally, the Super Cub "Street", in outstanding plasma yellow, is lovingly represented.

Bugs Bunny - Falling Hare (1943)

Classic Bugs Bunny goes to a military base where he meets up with a mischievous gremlin who gets the better of him. Animation by Rod Scribner, music by Carl W. Stalling. Produced in 1943.
Note the list of censored information about military location and strength. Not exactly the same as today, is it, where the New York Times and Newsweek both print illustrated guides mapping the vulnerable spots on soldiers' armor. Shameful. I love the Looney Toons comical jab about what the men think of their sergeant! Haha. Listening to today's media, you'd think soldiers only started complaining during the present administration.

Battle of the Roads (1950)

Another of the series sponsored by the Australian Road Safety Council, this film shows how the modern automobile has developed lethal powers over the years. We see how the modern car uses speed sometimes to the danger of the driver and his passengers as well as to the pedestrians who cross his path. The film emphasises the need for every driver to know the braking speed of his vehicle and the care which must be taken to avoid different hazards.
