Walt Disney Battles Malaria (with a little help from the Seven Dwarfs)

January 25, 2010

In this vintage Walt Disney cartoon, the Seven Dwarfs help battle the dread mosquito to stop the spread of malaria. Some of the recommendations for combating malaria (drain wetlands, dump oil in the water) are just a wee bit outdated. But Dopey looks so cute chasing mosquitoes around the house with his sprayer full of pesticide, I’ll forgive the creators for their lack of environmental enlightenment. Thanks to Twisted Bacteria for pointing out this classic.
