I Wanna Be a Sailor is a 1,937 Merrie Melodies cartoon directed by Tex Avery.
A mother parrot is teaching her children to say, "Polly want a cracker". The first two kids, Patrick and Patricia, do so after some effort, but Peter doesn't want to say cracker, he wants to be a sailor like his dad. His mother refuses, telling him that his dad had really set sail for Catalina, after he and the others were born. Peter is not impressed and runs off. He takes a barrel and joins forces with a rather annoying duck, and the two set sail on the lake. They eventually find trouble in a thunderstorm, and Peter calls his "Momma". She comes running, but he is already saved by the duck, despite it all he still wants to be a sailor.
The duck in this cartoon is theorized by some people as being the same duck that appeared in the cartoons It's an Ill Wind, Porky's Hotel, and She Was an Acrobat's Daughter.
The voice of Peter Parrot was done by prolific child actor Robert "Bobby" Winckler, who had worked in over 80 films and over 200 radio shows with most of the stars of the Golden Age of Hollywood. His IMDB page is listed under his often credited name Robert Winkler.
