Found an American Journal of Nursing from 1951 on jstor which listed this under “Film Roundup,” as part of a set which also included Labor and ChildbirthPrenatal Care and Postnatal Care. The actual listing was for Labor and Childbirth, which incorporates both live footage and animation,  emphasizes “the physical reasons which make psychological cooperation on the part of the mother essential,” and is “suitable for both young parents and professional students.” Angry Boy was listed in the same section.
