Friz Freleng updates some familiar fairy tales--and this being a 1942 cartoon, most of the gags have a wartime slant. Typical examples: While the Ant works hard to store for the winter, the Grasshopper puts his faith in US War Bonds; Aladdin rubs the lamp only to discover that the Genie has been unionized; Old Mother Hubbard is ratted out as a food hoarder; and the Goose that Lays the Golden Eggs converts to aluminum for the Duration. A cute running gag is provided by the Boy Who Cried Wolf (once too often, as it turns out!)
