Well, this is different, and usually I like that but I can't give this animated classic short more than "fair" marks.
The first two-and-a-half minutes of this cartoon is live action showing a little kid feeding ducks, then following one of the ducks who strayed to a nearby a pond. At that point, an animated frog appears, starts singing to the kid and then relays a story to him.
The story is far more dramatic than it is humorous, about the frog reaching from underneath the water, tickling the stomach of duck swimming by, and accidentally causing the duck to almost drown. The frog then has to turn into Johnny Weissmuller and swim frantically to save the duck's life. Then he's a hero to everyone in that duck's family. It's actually pretty suspenseful and probably scary a very little kid.
The film ends back with real-life footage with the frog saying, "If you don't believe me, ask him!" We a see big duck next to the kid, who then laughs.
Wow, talk about dated. I might have made this sound better than it is, because it's not very good.
