A young Judean boy tries to sell his beloved old donkey to someone who would care for him as much as he does.
Featuring a Christian-themed story and Jewish characters - the latter being a first for Disney animation, this is one of the studio's few animated films to deal with religion.
"The Merchant's Song" lyrics have been altered. The original lyrics were "We simply cheat a little if we must". In the recent versions it was changed to "We work a little harder if we must". This is because the original lyrics are perceived to have Jewish stereotypes. These original lyrics are no longer present on the DVD versions of the film.
