A Jitterbug show is staged in a country schoolroom at night, the leader being a drawing that comes to life, and assembles all the woodland wildlife musicians. Jack and Jill and other fairy-tale characters come to life and join the proceedings as dancers. The cuckoo in the clock is trying to get some sleep and finally emerges with a shotgun and quietens the noisemakers. Written by
