The "Aesop & Son" portion here is the story of the dog and his shadow (5:20), a playful parody of the original about the dog losing a bone. The son tells Aesop the original fable in ten seconds, and so Aesop feels that he has to create something different. His fable, of questionable fable value, has a dog losing his shadow and buying one "hot" from thugs. The interplay between dog and shadow provides for all sorts of good duet games. This section comes about thirty minutes into this forty-four minute tape, after "Dudley Do-Right," Rocky and Bullwinkle at a missile-launching station, and Bullwinkle's "rabbit from a hat" trick--and just before a missile-station guard is gassed.
