The Good Egg is a 1939 Merrie Melodies cartoon directed by Chuck Jones.


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 version" uses the 1941-55 "Merrily We Roll Along" ending cue while the US "dubbed version" uses the original ending cue.
