From Primetime to Daytime: The Lion & The Mouse (Aesop & Son, 1959)

It's been a while since we scoped Aesop & Son, one of the rotating back-up features from Rocky & His Friends (aka The Bullwinkle Show). Here, Jay Ward and his crew of zanies send up the oft-adapted tale of "The Lion & The Mouse":




Yes, that's Bullwinkle himself, Bill Scott, as the voice of the lion, in case you wondered.

Rating: B+.

These and the Fractured Fairytales were the main reason I watched Rocky & Bullwinkle. I liked the R&B stories too, but as a kid I found the backup features to be funnier.
