Porky tries to relax on a hunting and fishing trip, but Daffy, smugly pointing out the "No Duck Hunting" signs, subjects him to constant irritation. Then the "Duck Hunting Season Open" signs start going up.
A collection of brief vignettes. Within the Book of Fairy Tales, we find much-loved stories like these: Sleeping Beauty (chewed out by Prince Charming for sleeping in), Tom Thumb, the Grasshopper and the Ant (the grasshopper can afford to be lazy because he has war bonds), the Boy Who Cried Wolf, Jack and the Beanstalk, the Wolf in Sheep's Clothing ("the fifth columnist of his day"), Aladdin and His Lamp, the Goose That Laid the Golden Eggs (only they're aluminum for the war effort), Old Mother Hubbard (but her cupboard isn't bare; she's a "food hoarder"!), and This Little Piggy. The Boy Who Cried Wolf gets his comeuppance. Written by
Sleeping Beauty, Tom Thumb, The Grasshopper and the Ant, The Boy Who Cried Wolf, Jack and the Beanstalk are fairy tales that we all know and love but this animated short puts a small twist on them.
Honestly, this short is okay and mildly amusing but it's really not as clever as I think it tries to be. Basically we are told the familiar stories and then see a different outcome. For example, instead of the Prince kissing Sleeping Beauty, he instead screams at her to wake up and shakes her. The giant can't chase down Jack because his second head is sick and doesn't feel like it. Haha, right? This short is cute in its own way and it's slightly entertaining but it's certainly far from a classic.
