This is less awkward than it could have been. It's a fascinating look at what cultural norms allowed and how they discussed them. For example, it's true that some kids go through a "fat stage," but we wouldn't talk about it that way now. At the same time, the narrator immediately follows that with something indicating that people in the "fat stage" don't remain there forever. Far from being silly, the film attempts to deal with puberty in a way that is appropriate for the ages who will watch the film. Excellent slice of post-war America.
