    United Nations Day - trailer.

    Animation promoting United Nations Day on October 24th. Commentary encourages world peace and working together "like good neighbours". The cartoons look like childish chalk drawings on blackboard: we see stick people standing on hillside, a stickman playing with dog, stick people gardening, family of smiling stick people, map of world covered in stick people. Item ends with crowd of stick people that turns into United Nation symbol.6
