Storyline

A collection of animals goes to school; their teacher, a goose, asks them several questions, during which time an ape, sitting behind an elephant, keeps tormenting the elephant. The teacher leaves the room, putting a turtle in charge. While she's gone, things go fine for a while, but the ape starts an all-out book tossing brawl. As the teacher returns, everyone suddenly stops, and although the room is a shambles, she congratulates them on behaving and dismisses them for the day. On the way home, the elephant (who kept reminding us that he never forgets) finally takes revenge on the ape. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Cute, if somewhat trite, little short.

This is a cute (almost too cute) little cartoon with only a few Fleischer touches and some reasonably good visuals. Catchy title tune, sung by an elephant, naturally. If you like the early Betty Boops, this one will leave you cold for the most part. But it is a pretty cartoon and is well worth watching, at least once. On the Somewhere In Dreamland DVD set, which is in print and available. You won't regret buying this one! Recommended for kids and fans.
