Charley’s Tea Party (film #46 on National Archives). [Category: Educational]

Some tea party! Charley the cat gets badly burned when he pulled on the tablecloth of the tea table (a typically British tea was set out on it) to get at some kippers and the teapot full of hot water fell on him. This one is almost too upsetting, yet I think it has just the right touch to be a good warning for kids, especially when you consider that they probably have gotten to know and like Charley throughout this series.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ****.
