Storyline

An extremely large Old King Cole sings his story. His "fiddlers three" turn out to be the Three Blind Mice. And his book is Mother Goose, which illustrates Little Miss Muffett, Jack and Jill (they meet Simple Simon at the top of the hill), Humpty Dumpty, Little Jack Horner (his pie also contains the four-and-twenty blackbirds), Little Bo Peep, Little Boy Blue (his horn brings the sheep home, one of which falls in black mud and becomes Baa Baa Black Sheep), and Hey Diddle Diddle.

Beware! Scary Moment for Kids!
14 January 2003 | by rob littleSee all my reviews

Just a quick word of warning - I watched this excellent cartoon with my 2 year old daughter and she was terrified by the spider that approaches the screen a couple of times. It gave her nightmares for a couple of days. Despite this, this is one of my favourite Disney B&W shorts right up there with The Skeleton Dance and The Mad Doctor (she hasn't seen this one yet. I think I'll wait until she's a bit older!)
