Literary Toons: Aesop & Son (1959)

Originally introduced as one of several backup features on Rocky & His Friends (aka The Bullwinkle Show), Aesop & Son took the classic fables of Aesop and turned them upside down, as only Jay Ward and his staff could. Film star Charles Ruggles, who didn't get screen credit, voiced Aesop, whilst his son was played by Daws Butler.

If you want the real story, as it was originally written, you might have to go to the library to find any books on Aesop.

Rating: C.
