The Good Egg is a 1939 Merrie Melodies cartoon.


A hen with no chicks adopts a leftover turtle egg, which obviously hatches into a turtle. Naturally, the turtle does not fit in nicely with the baby chicks. The turtle becomes the butt of jokes for the chicks, until real danger happens.


The EU dubbed uses the 1941-55 cue while the US uses the original ending cue.
