In a video that captures a combination of the emotions one might have experienced watching filmstrips and educational movies, the Government Printing Office celebrates the miracle of print via a comic book featuring the rather bizarrely named “Squeaks the Mouse.”

A mouse?

Overall, this charming segment — with its amateur pace, gee-whiz narration, and frosting of innocence — seems like a throwback to not only a media age of a different time, but to a documentary style from a prior generation.

Happy Friday!

(Thanks to Bruce Rosenblum for the pointer.)
