A Mouse's Gratitude/The Foolish Tiger and the Foolish Leopard/Outsmarting the Cat
The mouse is spared because she has seven children. The final story about belling the cat has a good moral: What you cannot do yourself, do not expect others to do. Good lively cartoon work in the Disney tradition. A ...
The North Wind and the Sun/A Lion and a Mosquito/An Eagle and a Crow
