Okay folks, time to stretch again.

In 1987, we were shown an American (or possibly Canadian, eh?) social education film as part of 'social relations camp'.  The camp itself wasn't exactly a camp, more a series of day long seminars and workshops revolving around social activity, teamwork, social expectations etc.

The short film looked like it had been produced in the late 70's or early 80's.  It was animated, and talked about parental expectations and the influences, both good and bad, that young people can be subject to.  One scene involved the parents inflating their son with a bicycle pump, saying 'son' at the same time as pumping in another round of air.  "Son!"  (whoosh)  "Son!"  (whoosh).  You get the idea.  Eventually they pump him up so much that he flies off the tube into the air.

Later, the son takes a groovy, almost psychedelic walk down the street, while people offer him cigarettes, alcohol and drugs.  While he walks, some funky music plays, and he has a slow, relaxed gait.

I know this outside of the normal realm of our viewing, but has anyone seen this, or know what it was?

I have no idea. Sounds creepy and funny though. I want to know this too though I never saw it. Have you ever visited the IMDB (the Internet movie database)? They are very helpful there and tons of questions about TV shows, movies, and so on, have been asked and most answered.
