A lavish pop-up book opens to reveal the castle of Old King Cole. The merry monarch's kingdom is populated by the Pied Piper, Little Boy Blue, Old Mother Hubbard, the Woman in the Shoe, and other such fairy-tale favorites. Dancing to a lively tune, the subjects gather to attend King Cole's annual jamboree, with entertainment provided by the Fiddlers Three, Mary Quite Contrary, Peter Pumpkin Eater, Mr. and Mrs. Jack Sprat, The Three Little Kittens, the Three Blind Mice, Goosey Gander, Humpty Dumpty and Simple Simon (who wears a Napoleon hat!). But the hit of the evening is that popular musical aggregation, the Ten Little Indian Boys. This cartoon cunningly recycles animation from the earlier Disney efforts Flowers and Trees and The Pied Piper.
