  2. Excellent illustrations and film uit gets to the point of spreading of germs and very clear at all levels. Very funny to watch and perhaps it should shown to the wider audience for everyone to know how not spread their germs.


  3. Hilarious and very clever but with a serious message attached. All too many people out there who should be made to watch this film and appreciate what the consequences of their actions are. Well done to everyone involved.

  4. Very creative use of archive footage mixed with some lovely animation. A great collection of sneezes, and the rap at the end was brilliant!

  12. I like the 'period' voice. An Ealing Comedy, but animated. Let us hope that it is watched by the whole nation, especially the travellers on the Norwich line.
