Storyline

Flannery is a station master who does everything by the book. One day, a package of guinea pigs arrives at his station. Flannery assumes by their name that they are pigs but one customer, McMorehouse, who wishes to purchase refuses to pay 48 cents for pigs because he thinks they are pets and should be 44 cents. Flannery decides to write to the head office and asks if they are pigs or pets. While waiting for an answer, the pigs begin to multiply. After a few days, the station is literally filled with guinea pigs and Flannery finally realizes they are pets, not pigs. He goes to McMorehouse's home to deliver them but McMorehouse has moved. Flannery decides to send all the guinea pigs to the head office and learns his lesson about handling pets. Says Flannery, "If the animals come in singles or if they come in sets, if they've got four feet and they're alive, they'll be classified as pets!" Written by Matt Yorston <georgey@atcon.com>

Trivia

The character in Ellis Parker Butler's short story is named Morehouse. The Disney studios changed the name to "McMorehouse" to establish a connection with the then-prevalent "stingy Scot" stereotype. See more »

Cute cartoon, but the original source story is better

While this cartoon, nominated for an Oscar, is a good adaptation of a classic short story with the same title and is very cute and worth seeing, the source material (Butler's story) is simply marvelous and should also be read. Disney did a good job in adaptation, given their track record for adaptations. Worth watching, this runs periodically on The Ink and Paint Club on the Disney Channel.
