A Gander at Mother Goose is a 1940 Merrie Melodies cartoon directed by Tex Avery.

Storyline

A collection of short gags based on classic nursery rhymes and fairy tales. Mary, Mary Quite Contrary, in her best impersonation of Katharine Hepburn, tells us how her garden is really doing. Humpty Dumpty doesn't completely crack up. Jack and Jill go up the hill and are having too much fun to even care to come down. Little Miss Muffet frightens the spider off. The Three Little Pigs give the Big Bad Wolf a bottle of mouth-wash. A parade of wooden soldiers, in perfect formation from the waist up. Starlight, Starbright: A dog gets his wish a tree. Jack be nimble but is not quite nimble enough. The old lady in the shoe made the old man very happy. A gag involving Hiawatha. Finally, the night before Christmas, and one stirring mouse tells the other to be quiet.

Censorship

Versions of this cartoon shown on the Ted Turner-owned networks (TBS, TNT, Cartoon Network, and Boomerang) cut the entire scene of Little Hiawatha shooting an arrow into the air, then getting yelled at by the eagle he hit.
