Storyline

An extremely large Old King Cole sings his story. His "fiddlers three" turn out to be the Three Blind Mice. And his book is Mother Goose, which illustrates Little Miss Muffett, Jack and Jill (they meet Simple Simon at the top of the hill), Humpty Dumpty, Little Jack Horner (his pie also contains the four-and-twenty blackbirds), Little Bo Peep, Little Boy Blue (his horn brings the sheep home, one of which falls in black mud and becomes Baa Baa Black Sheep), and Hey Diddle Diddle. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

An animated relic.
22 September 2012 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

This kind of thing may well have fascinated children in 1931, but it's relic of a long-gone era in animation when watching it from a modern point of view, only without any nostalgia.

Old King Cole is being entertained outdoor by various nursery rhyme characters who sing and dance. Only the materials for this cartoon are obviously so degraded that you can barely understand anything they are saying now. A prototype characters can be spotted among the basic, low grade, black and white animation.

This is no classic. And will likely be only watched once by even Disney completists.
