Fun Short

Humpty Dumpty (1935)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Decent short from Ub Iwerks has Humpty Dumpty, Jr. talking about his father and soon afterwards falling in love with a female egg. Before long a bad egg shows up and the three do a battle. HUMPTY DUMPTY probably should have been named something else since I'm sure people are going to turn it on and expect the classic tale and not something with his son. With that said, for the most part this is a fun short that gives us plenty of action and I must admit that it was somewhat charming seeing the three eggs battling one another. There's no doubt that the film would have benefited from more laughs but this was still an entertaining short.
