Storyline

Morning on the farm. A rooster rousts the chickens and geese. The chicks run out from under a huge hen, leaving her much smaller. She digs for a worm by turning her bill into a brace and bit, then divides the worm among the kids by running it through a meat grinder. One of the chicks has a fight with one of the resulting worms. An expectant father rooster fetches doctor stork, who comes out with a basket full of white chicks and one little black one, who gets crowded out of the food. Seeing a fenced in garden, he sings the title song. Finding a discarded girdle, he uses it as wings, and a pair of bloomers as a parachute. Feast time! That is, until the scarecrow comes after him, but he's quickly dispatched. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

. . . Warner Bros.' Animated Shorts Seers division (aka, the Looney Tuners) historically have had a far more accurate track record in having the multitude of their prognostications of 21st Century America's upcoming Calamities, Catastrophes, Cataclysms, and Apocalypti ACTUALLY COME TRUE compared to such over-rated past "prophets" as Nostradamus. However, like Cassandra of the Ancient Greeks, Warner's warnings generally have fallen upon blind eyes, as illustrated by the Sherman's-March-to-the-Sea-like Advent of White House Resident-Elect Rump. Take I WISH I HAD WINGS, for instance. As it was released in 1932, new American Czar Red Commie KGB Chief Vlad "Mad Dog" Putin's Red State Enablers in America's "Fly-Over" Country SHOULD have had plenty of time to digest its message. However, these U.S. Bread Basket of Deplorables somehow failed to realize that THEY were the night-crawler(s) the Fat Cat Billionaire-representing Hen shoves into the meat grinder midway through I WISH I HAD WINGS. The post-meat-grinder worms (or Red State Citizens) come out even smaller and MORE endangered, as the swarm of Mini-Me Rumps engendered by the Red Commie Satan Putin when he established America's first-ever Monarch-in-Residence eat them for lunch! Especially if you're a Red State Commie Sympathizer, please check out I WISH I HAD WINGS in its entirety, as it painstakingly etches out ALL the details of your Imminent Doom cut by cut by cut.
