The famous Civil Defense film in which Bert the Turtle shows children how to protect themselves if faced with an atomic attack. In 2004, the film was added to the National Film Registry's list of "culturally, historically and aesthetically significant motion pictures".

One viewer made this observation: "While the drill was touted as Duck and Cover, we all know that it was nothing more than the time-tested 'Put your head between your legs and kiss your ass goodbye' maneuver."
