Mother Goose Stories was made in 1946 by pioneering stop-motion animator Ray Harryhausen. Distributed to schools, the ten and a half minute silent-film style series of shorts includes Little Miss Muffet, Old Mother Hubbard, The Queen of Hearts, and Humpty Dumpty. It begins and ends with Mother Goose at a projector.
He used armatured models. The ball and socket armatures were made by his father although based on Ray’s designs, and were clothed in tiny costumes made by his mother. Each had a series of replacement heads, with extreme expressions and he would dissolve from one head to another to simulate reactions.
