The Prodigy - Charly music video


Director: Russel Curtis
Producer: Jill Mumford

A typical 'rave era' music video directed by Russell Curtis features live footage of one of the costume-wearing Prodigy's early performances with other fast moving, colourful visual effects. The video contrasts the song's lyrics and "infamous" sample by playing a clip of a government warning to always tell your parents where you were going. The cartoon figure used was a young child, named Tony, who had a ginger cat named Charley; "Charley Says" was a short series of informational cartoons produced for children during the 1970s dealing with everyday issues such as not playing with matches and not talking to strangers.

If you want know something more about the original Charly cartoon film I suggest you to check out http://www.tecc.co.uk/matt/charley/charley.php. This site is a tribute to the "Charly says... " series of public information films, that were made in the 1970s, and aired during ITV commercial breaks. The site does have an incredible amount of information about the series, and even a small mention to other information safety films. The only mistake I've noticed is that they've stated Prodigy released Charly in 1993, when we all know that's two years too late!
