Storyline

Noah, his family (wife, 3 sons, their wives), and various animals all help build the ark. The rains come, and the skunks barely miss the boat (not that anyone was particularly looking for them), but they manage to swim to it. After the rain and many lamentations by the humans, the sun returns, to the great joy of all. The ground appears, and the animals (and many new babies) disembark.

Disney's first take on Noah

This short was Disney's first visit to Noah-it was followed up 26 years later by Noah's Ark. Of the two, this one is much closer to the typical Disney animated short and this one is very good. The other is more unusual in style and format, but both are fairly successful in what they try to do. Good to see this in-print. Beautifully executed. Recommended.
