To the tune "I Would Like to Be a Bird," a young mouse fashions wings from a pair of leaves, to the great amusement of his brothers when his attempts to use them fail. When the butterfly he rescues from a spider proves to be a fairy, he wishes for wings. But his bat-like appearance doesn't fit in with either the birds or the other mice, and he finds himself friendless; even the bats make fun of him. Written by

What a great cartoon! When the mouse returns to his normal self at the end and runs for home crying out "Mom!" I think I cry just about every time. The music fits in perfectly too. His mother embraces him, his brothers dance around them, happy that he has returned, and all is well. Mushy? Maybe, but I love it anyway!
