Hinterland Who's Who Loons

The haunting call of the loon is a common sound around lakes in Canada and this government sponsored Public Service Announcement (PSA) was heard just as often coming from Canadian TV sets all across the country in the 1970’s and 80’s. The Hinterland Who’s Who Loons video is probably the best remembered in the series of short films, but they also made clips for beavers, bears, moose, geese and more.

Up here in the Great White North, the loon is an icon, and is even on our $1 coin, which is aptly called the loonie. They look like gold pieces but are still only worth a dollar (even less south of the border! lol). Oh well, let’s just forget about the economy for now and just enjoy this video from a time back when a buck would actually buy something…
