The Hairbrush

Australian Workers Film Guide


A short animated comedy film that highlights the challenges faced by nurses in the emergency room. One patient has embarrassingly lodged a hairbrush in her backside, while another Barbie doll character complains about waiting to be served and attended to, since she has come to the ER after her son drew on her face with a marker pen. The nurse removes the hairbrush and gives it to the complaining character to brush her hair.
