Here are three shorts from the mid-50s that are pretty child-friendly & all stylized: The Truth About Mother Goose, the Little House and Every Cowboy Needs a Horse.
The Truth About Mother Goose is hosted by 3 jesters, telling the audience the true stories behind the stories. Did you know Little Jack Horner was actually a thief & stole the deed of a house from King Henry VIIII? Did you know Mary Mary Quite Contrary was actually Mary Queen of Scots? Did you know London Bridge was real & got ruined multiple times? Now you do! It's interesting to hear of these true allegories from these famous nursery rhymes & the animation's good.
The Little House is based off the children's book by Virginia lee Burton. It's about the life of a little cottage & the life it's had, going from a married couple moving in to almost getting demolished. It's really sweet, Sterling Holloway's a good narrator & seeing it now, it's got a bit of vibes from PIXAR's Up.
Every Cowboy needs a Horse is about the dream a little boy has, where he imagines himself a cowboy in the ol' west. He fights off Indians, battles outlaws, saves a damsel, all that good stuff. I remember hearing the title song on one of Disney's sing-along home videos & was good. The rest of it's good too, although it can go by pretty fast.DAY 33
