Three witches need a worm to complete their potion; they dispatch a raven to catch one, and he goes after a bookworm. He chases the worm into the horror section, where the monsters attack but soon, Paul Revere rides Black Beauty to the rescue, along with the Police Gazette, and other assorted war heroes; eventually, the Boy Scouts build a match-stick bridge, leading the worm to safety.

Inside someone's personal library, all of the characters from the books and magazines come to life. The witches from "MacBeth" (not "Hamlet", as another reviewer stated) are making their brew, and they realize they need a worm. The raven from Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven" is commissioned for the task. Fortunately for the story, a meek little worm just happens to be perusing the books at the time. The rest of the story is a long chase scene between the raven and the bookworm.
There's nothing here you haven't seen numerous times with Bugs Bunny & Elmer Fudd, Wile E. Coyote & the Road Runner, Tom & Jerry, Sylvester & Tweety, etc. But this cartoon still has a certain creative charm the way various characters from literature, pop fiction (for the time), and magazines are incorporated into the story's events.
An amusing way to spend eight minutes.
