Storyline

King Humpty Dumpty has a huge amount of gold, but wants more. He sees the sun, and thinks it is full of gold, so he orders his subjects (the various Mother Goose characters) to build his golden wall higher. They comply, and he reaches the sun, but when he does, the sun sends lightning bolts after him, which topple the wall. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

Humpty Dumpty: [singing] I'm Humpty Dumpty, king of wealth / This wall of gold is my throne! / I built it high, till it reaches the sky! / This wall is all my own! / The more I have, the more I want! / I love the glistening stuff! / There's power untold in these pieces of gold! / I've never had enough!

really old but classic
3 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm only 16 years old but for some strange reason when I was really young we had a collection of cartoons from earlier decades, including this movie.

I have no idea why we had them, but anyway my brother and I used to watch this short, along with numerous others (I don't know their names I just remember the plots) almost every single day. For some reason it didn't scare me.

It was great, even though I vaguely remember it. Kind of twisted, probably not great for little kids. It teaches a good lesson though! You're never going to find me building weak infrastructure..
