This is a short that came with the "A Tale Of Two Cities" DVD, an animated movie starring "Bosko," a character movie audiences in the early '30s had seen before but not in color. This is "cinecolor," whatever that was, and the visuals were fine. In fact, they were the best of the cartoon with some of the backgrounds looking almost like Bambi-esquire watercolor (but not that good!).
The story was nothing that funny, comprised entirely of rhyme and song. I found the sound weak, making it difficult to understand all the lyrics, which was frustrating.
In this story, Bosko induces characters from Mother Goose - all of whom are poor (even Old King Cole) and have no food - to begin growing food on a farm so they can eat. That's it - that simple. As I said, really not funny and not something I'd watch again, although it has some charming moments.
