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

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!

I remember watching "Greedy Humpty Dumpty" on TV back during the 50's. This cartoon disturbed me and I never forgot it. I just purchased the Max Fleischer cartoon collection on DVD and finally saw "Greedy Humpty Dumpty" in color this time. When that bolt of lightning spanks Humpty Dumpty, kids will just freak out. Some parents may end up taking their kids to a child psychiatrist. I feel that out of control kids need to be propped up in front of a TV and compelled to see this disturbing cartoon. They'll be shell-shocked and they will no longer sass back their parents.
Thank you, Humpty Dumpty!
