The Kid Should See This

The Lion and the Mouse (1976) – Evelyn Lambart

The Lion and the Mouse is a classic fable that highlights how huge contributions can come from unexpected places, that a kindness is never wasted, and that even when you’re the king of the forest, you can be in need of help.

This 1976 version of the story was created by National Film Board technical director and ‘First Lady of Canadian Animation’ Evelyn Lambart in her signature style: “…paper cutouts transferred to lithograph plate which she would then paint and animate.”

Follow this wordless classic with two other Lambart classics: The Hoarder (1969) and Fine Feathers (1968).
