pretty straightforward propaganda piece

Although it's available on a GoodTimes "Best of Sci-Fi Cartoons", I really have no idea what this short has to do with sci-fi, since it consists of dragons, which are usually thought of as fantasy. The storyline of the cartoon is super-basic, consists of the nasty clique of dragons, complete with head bully "Dragoon" and sleazy females, all of whom celebrate cigarettes. Meanwhile, our hero, the individualist and non-conformist, "Dragknight", refuses to have anything to do with the clique, and eventually defeats Dragoon at arm-wrestling and racing, which obviously proves that smoking is bad and evil.

The quality of the animation is - well, let's be generous and say pretty worthless. The jazz music may be of interest to aficionados, but the recording quality is equally poor. This one is easily missed for those who aren't interested for historical reasons.
