Wonderful animation that shows that it can be a good thing to just be yourself and march to your own tune!

This Puppetoon was nominated for an Oscar in 1947 and is absolutely delightful to watch. It shows that, no matter who you are, being true to yourself is not just a good thing for you, but, in the long run, for others as well. Amazing in the detail work and simply and grandly wonderful. I cannot recommend this strongly enough. A marvelous effort!
