Storyline

A bootle beetle elder tells the story of Morris, the moose about the size of a rabbit. Thunderclap the moose is taking on all challengers, and Morris decides to try, much to the amusement of Thunderclap. As a result, he meets Balsam, a full-size moose with tiny antlers (Morris' antlers are full size). The two team up, and with the help of a log that makes them very tall, defeat Thunderclap.

A tiny bit sappy, but pretty cute, too.
25 September 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

If you are looking for this short, try the "Disney Timeless Treasures: Volume 3". It's there along with several other seldom-seen cartoon shorts.

The cartoons begin with a couple young bugs fighting over food. An older and wiser bug stops them and tells them a morality tale so they'll learn the value of sharing and taking turns.

The story he tells is about Morris Moose--a shrimpy moose who just wouldn't grow. And the other moose all laughed at him as a result! Then came the day when all the male moose would challenge the champion, Thunderclap, to become leader. One by one, Thunderclap defeated all his challengers until it was Morris' turn. Did Morris win? Did the little bugs learn a lesson? Tune in and see for yourself! As you'd expect from any Disney short, this one has terrific animation. Plus the story is cute and pretty clever and well worth seeing. It manages to tell a nice object lesson to kids without seeming too preachy or that sappy--and is good entertainment for all.
