This short subject -- about one reel -- is more interesting as an historical artifact than as a work of art: it was Harryhausen's first independent production after working for George Pal. Essentially a silent with a synchronized sound score, it covers four Mother Goose rhymes animating the supertitled words that appear one at a time like a teletype.

Although the animation is not as elaborate and convincing as it would become by the 1960s, underneath the overly bright colors and banal images, you can still see Harryhausen's sense of humor, particularly in the credits. Even so, it's not particularly fascinating. For Harryhausen fans only.
