Always Kickin’ (1939) — Color Clas­sics The­atri­cal Car­toon Series

Mother don­key Hunky tries to teach her son Spunky how to exer­cise his back kicks to kick like a “man,” but he doesn’t take it seri­ously. All that Spunky wants to do is sing along with his lit­tle birdy friends. He even tries to fly, but the birds dis­cour­age this folly. Sud­denly, an ugly hawk swoops down and kid­naps one of the baby birds from its nest. Spunky sum­mons all his courage to climb up a moun­tain to the hawk’s lair, to con­front the bully. Hunky tells Spunky to use his kick­ing, and Spunky man­ages to knock the bad bird out cold so that good don­keys and good birds can live hap­pily ever after.
