The Milky Way, which is a street made of baby bottles, leads up to the Baby Factory, which is run by storks. Babies of both sexes are produced and sent down conveyor belts for the storks to diaper them. More than just humans are produced at the baby factory. In the Incubator Dept., storks add all nine lives to each new kitten. Easter eggs are put in the toaster-like Eggubator to produce baby rabbits. Baby penguins are incubated inside ice cube trays. An iron press creates baby chicks from eggs; but too much heat will produce a chick that is Edward G. Robinson-like, i.e. hard boiled. One of the storks turns to the audience and invites us to follow the bouncing ball and sing along to "Pretty Baby". Written by J. Spurlin

Chorus: [singing] # Start the day with a song / And sing the whole day through. / Even while you're busy working, / Do just like the birdies do. / Though the day may be long, / You never will go wrong. / Low key, high key, any old key, / Just start the day with a song. #

There's no point here--only very cute silliness
7 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

The first half of The Stork Market is just adorable--it'll have you either cooing with glee or gagging on the syrupy silliness. Being a dopey girl myself, I truly enjoyed watching storks deliver various baby animals in cartoonily creative ways. Sadly though, the second half of the cartoon is just your average sing along cartoon, and Pretty Baby isn't a terribly thrilling song to sing along to.
