Cute! And educational. But, more importantly, cute!

Well, those wizards at the Kaiser Family Foundation have done it again.  They have found yet another way to blow this blogger’s mind.  This time, in the form of a 9 minute cartoon on health reform.

It’s titled “Health Reform Hits Main Street,” and is narrated by – who else? – Cokie Roberts.  Never thought I would see a cartoon narrated by Cokie Roberts.  But, then again, I never thought I would call health reform “cute” either.  For those who don’t remember, Roberts is a news commentator for ABC News and NPR.  Apparently, she is also a member of Kaiser’s Board of Trustees.

As you may have guessed by now, the cartoon is super cute.  And educational! It basically explains the problems with the current health care system, the changes that are happening now, and the big changes coming in 2014. And…it’s available in Spanish too!

So, go ahead: pick your language, pour yourself a big bowl of Lucky Charms, and click play!

P.S. – And no, the Spanish version isn’t also narrated by Cokie Roberts.  Rather, it is narrated by Dr. Isabel Gomez-Bassols, host of the program “La Doctora Isabel, el Angel de la Radio” which airs on Univision.
