SYNOPSIS: Based on the children's fable "The Little Red Hen," this classic cartoon is most well known for having the very first appearance of a certain bad-tempered duck in a sailor suit! That's right, this was the origin of Donald Duck!
In the story, the hard-working hen (and in this version, her adorable brood of chicks) want to grow some corn to turn into bread. She asks some of the other farm animals for help (in this case, Peter Pig and Donald Duck) but they keep making up tales of stomach aches so they don't have to do any of the hard work. Of course, once all of the food is ready to be eaten, the hen tells them that only the people who HELPED prepare the food may eat it... and they go hungry.
