Humpty Dumpty, (20th Century)

An animated short by distributed by Bailey Films, Inc.

This vintage cartoon is an early attempt at 3D animation. It’s very old, made in color, and brings the classic nursery rhyme Humpty Dumpty to life:

“Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty Had a great fall. And all the King’s horses, and all the King’s men, couldn’t put Humpty together again.”

The expression on the horses faces is priceless, and the footage of mother goose at the end, with her titular pet goose, is adorable.
