The Fun of Making Friends

Please choose a format above.

Making friends is one of those paradoxical situations where, if you have to watch a Coronet short about how to do it, it’s already too late.

Take for example, the star of The Fun of Making Friends, a little wiener named Joey. Joey’s been trying to make friends by creepily staring at people from his bedroom window. So far his foot has fallen asleep and a dog barked at him, but he hasn’t made any friends.

Old-fashioned Coronet browbeating to the rescue! If you don’t have any friends, it’s solely because of your own personal failings. Fortunately, there are a few simple rules that can make you the most popular kid on the monkey bars. One: don’t pick up the phone; you know he's only callin' cause he's drunk and alone. Two: don't let him in, you'll have to kick him out again. And three: don’t be his friend.

Those are, of course, actually Dua Lipa’s rules, not Coronet’s, but to be fair, they’ve got a much better beat. Tune in to The Fun of Making Friends to see if Joey can become popular by doing what a middle aged narrator tells him to!
