Designed to impress children with need to be on guard against molesters, w/out arousing fear or curiosity. Dramatizes circumstances & places in which children may encounter "dangerous strangers". Says that uninformed, naive children are most frequently "taken in" by molesters tactics & emphasizes that forewarned children can avoid such persons. A policeman acts as narrator & is shown as child's friend.
