Storyline

A hen and her chicks stumble across some wheat. The hen asks other farm animals to help her sow the wheat, but they all decline. They also refuse to help her water and harvest the wheat or bake bread with the resulting grains. She and her chicks manage to do all the work themselves, then delight in refusing to share the bread with the animals who would not help her to make it. Written by Melissa

A fairly decent cartoon that holds up well.
19 November 2003 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This is actually a pretty fair short, for all that it's all but inescapable to compare and contrast with Disney's The Wise Little Hen, given that they have the same fable as a starting point. The Iwerks version is actually as good or better in some respects, but Iwerks was really better off avoiding direct comparison to his once and future employer. They weren't the only studio to make this mistake, as Fleischer Studios also tried to out-Disney Disney, with less than successful results. Still, this is a charming little cartoon with a rather cute little song. Most definitely worth seeing. Recommended.
