Chicken Lit­tle

A cou­ple days ago, I panned Chicken Lit­tle in CotD as the worst Dis­ney fea­ture ani­mated film ever; this in NOT that Chicken Lit­tle. This one was directed by Clyde Geron­imi, and pro­duced in 1943. This one was a short.

The tra­di­tional story of the lit­tle chicken who believes that the sky is falling … but with a decid­edly dif­fer­ent end­ing. This adap­ta­tion of the tale points up the dan­ger of believ­ing and spread­ing rumors.

In the orig­i­nal ver­sion of this car­toon, Foxey Loxey reads the book ‘Mein Kampf.” In a re-released ver­sion, the title has been changed to read ‘Psy­chol­ogy.”

One of a series of four spe­cial ani­mated films pro­duced by the Dis­ney Stu­dios at the request of the U.S. gov­ern­ment dur­ing World War II for the pur­pose of dis­cred­it­ing total­i­tar­i­an­ism in gen­eral and Nazism in particular.
