THE GREAT TOILET PAPER SCARE

Sponsored by Blackhorse Espresso & Bakery

In 1973, amid a national gas shortage, rumors surfaced of a toilet paper shortage too, triggered when late night host Johnny Carson joked about it. Using wry humor, archival news clips and clever animation, this film documents how unfounded rumors spread — even before social media.
