Momma parrot is teaching her young-uns to say "Polly want a cracker" but little Peter doesn't want a cracker, he wants to be a sailor like dad. Mom tells him what a no-account his dad really was, setting sail for Hawaii ("no, Maw, it was Catalina") right after the kids were born. Peter is unswayed, and takes off. He turns a barrel into a boat, and crews it with an annoyingly talkative duckling, then sets sail on a lake. They get caught in a thunderstorm (the duck loves it). Peter calls for help and momma comes running, but the duck has already saved him. But he still wants to be a sailor.

Did You Know?
After the mother asks her son at the end if he still wants to be a sailor and says yes, she collapses and the iris out effect happens, However it's reverses back to the mother and the mother breaks the 4th wall by saying to the audience... "Now what would you do with a child like that" and collapses again, and then it irises out to the "That's all Folks" card. See more
