    It's always about the freekin comb.
    Edit: Too bad RIcky's parents are such poor examples for Ricky.

    Poor Ricky gets blamed for bad parenting. But at least he grew up and bought an ak-47 to retrain those lousy parents.

    Love these nostalgic films lol. Reminds me of a day when multiple sibling families were a thing and fighting for the bathroom was the norm. lol. Ty Fran.

    Kind of reminds me of the 'trainables' video. Worth a watch even though it's rather outdated/offensive now.

    I immediately associated to the song "Beastie Boys – Party". When I was young, like Ricky, I used to listen to these songs on MTV, and because of that I used to get to school late, lol. I really hope that Ricky will not find that song, it would ruin him, lol.

    LOL! 1960s hokum! I remember well, those old films on hygiene and self-discipline – we'd make fun of the Goofuses in them on the playground later on. Yes, I know that they were a rite of passage here in the US, but the saccharin atmosphere in them was always cringe-worthy. (I'll shut up now).

    " Ricky, he's got their number, doesn't care what society wants/ he might choose to live life better, when he leaves home….."

    Ricky and his friends corner Pete at school. Pete gets the crap beat of him. Making the other kids look bad.

    As soon as Dr. Marvin Glock was introducing this, I thought I was listening to Dr. Marvin Monroe of the the Simpsons…same vibe, with Ricky instead of Bart.

    I learned a lot. Wish I had seen this a few years ago. I have an 18 year old and it's still exactly the same. Me and my wife laughed hard. They left off the part where grandma was hammered on cough syrup and the parents weren't really out shopping at 10:00pm but rather getting hammered on their evening out 😄.

    Great video Fran!!

    Ricky is like Mr. Bungle. He’s probably going to jail in a few years unless he’s adopted by Pete’s family.

    Discipline through social engineering: exposing defective parenting children to better disciplined friends can propagate. Let's watch Ricky realize this…

    to adjust color is pretty difficult on these films, this one maybe too magenta for my taste. a bit of degrain filter will make things easier for yt conpressor, having less quads on the final video. good work!

    "He wants his red shirt." Little did they know all the shirts would be red in ten to fifteen years.

    Oh Ricky… I suppose you're in prison or dead or living under a bridge. Look at all that 1960s goodness. So kids in 1969 needed 11 hours of sleep? I don't remember sleeping that much. Guess that's why I'm not a CEO by now. My parents used to let me stay up until at least 10 most nights and I'd sometimes watch Lawrence Welk or whatever other lukewarm comatose dreck they were into with them. That always put me right to sleep. I'm sure I was undiagnosed ADHD. They just didn't understand it when I was a child. The school even tested my hearing and intelligence and discovered I was wasn't an idiot, but tuning everyone out and just doing my own thing, usually a few chapters ahead in whatever book we were working in. Perhaps I would have been considered to be on the Autism Spectrum if I was I kid in present times..

    Older parents. Going out to that fancy FRENCH restaurant without the kids. And I just watched CBS Sunday Morning talk to Maggie Gyllenhaal about directing The Lost Daughter. After the age of 7, the old man was already out to work and my mother slept in. When I hear stories about having to deal with kids oversleeping, preparing them, etc. I feel like I grew up on another planet.

    Ricky's mom needs to buy him new trousers – his were halfway to his knees. I blame the parents for Ricky's poor discipline.
