Wake Up, Freddy

One man's morning routine reveals the hidden energy costs of everyday life.

A printer-friendly version of this page 21 minutes
Produced by Christopher O'Donnell

In the tradition of Bullfrog's classic film, "Toast," here's a whimsical introduction to where resources come from and where waste goes, with a bouncy soundtrack everyone loves.

Freddy wakes to the sound of his blaring alarm. In an amazing camera journey, we follow the path energy takes to get to Freddy's house and to power his alarm. When Freddy takes his morning shower we see where the water comes from and how it travels through pipes and processing stations all the way to Freddy's shower head. Then we watch the used water wash down Freddy's drain. Guess where we go next!

"Excellent technical standards, interesting camera angles and exhilarating original music...This program would supplement a social studies, science, or even a music unit."

"Remind(s) the instant gratification crowd...that power, water, and even bread do not appear by magic. A good discussion starter for a talk about using resources. Recommended for elementary school libraries."
