Dennis Day tells the story of Johnny Appleseed (John Chapman), narrated by The Old Settler. He's an apple farmer who sees people going west and thinks he can't join them, until an angel appears to him and sings the virtues of apples, convincing Johnny he has a mission. He sets off without a knife or gun; at first, the animals mistrust him, but when he even treats a skunk kindly, they all take to him. Written by

Lively, well animated and colourful- definitely worth watching!
I first saw this lovely cartoon featured in the film "Melody Time", and I have concluded it is one of my favourite cartoons from the film. It is a very relaxing watch, and certainly memorable. The animation is colourful and fluid, that alone adds to the charm of the cartoon. Johnny himself is a likable protagonist, and his angel is an amusing character as well. I do have to mention the songs, they were beautiful and lively, and Dennis Day who voiced all the characters in "Johnny Appleseed" had a perfect melodious voice. The story is simple, but I loved its simplicity, that's what made it so charming. Overall, this is very beautiful and worth watching at least once.
