Cartoon Production Information:
The special was described in a trade brochure as "a lesson not only in the importance of conservation, but in a reverence for life- all life."
The Teleguide for the program, suggesting a number of activities for students of various levels, was written by Augusta Goldin and the editors of Scholastic Teacher.
The ABC Mailing Report showed that "teachers who had given the special as an assignment found the discussions and compositions most gratifying." One teacher continued, "Such a bold portrayal of wanton destruction took tremendous courage on your part." The movie has been translated into several languages, and is now in international syndication.
