The Bear and the Mouse

Top of page

A variation on a fable by Aesop in which a mouse aids the escape of a bear in return for past favours. Designed for children, this film shows real animals doing exactly what the story requires, as though all were experienced actors. A real bear catches and then frees a real mouse; later, the mouse chews an escape route for his trapped benefactor. All this has just the kind of exaggerated action young children enjoy.
