Chorus: # Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. / Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. / All the king's horses and all the king's men / Couldn't put Humpty together again. #
Humpty Jr.: # My old man may have sat on a wall. / He slipped and had a very great fall. / But I'm Humpty Jr. / I'm just like my pop. / I climb where I please / And they can't make me stop. #

Not What It's 'Cracked' Up To Be
1 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a weak effort, to be honest. It started out promising, with Humpty Dumpty Jr., yes, the famous egg's kid.

Dumpty falls from the ledge, gets caught by mother and gets a lecture on not being dumb like his father who wound up falling "and getting cracked." What we wind up with in this story is "Junior" falling for a female egg and having to fight off "the bad egg" to get her.

It drags on a bit too much with a predictable ending. In the middle and at the end we get a song about "spooning." Overall, this wasn't one of the better efforts in the collection of a DVD called "Cartoons That Time Forget: The UB Iwerks Collection Vol. 1."
