The Lion and the Mouse (1976)

4 min.; Canada; dir. Evelyn Lambart

This artful cut-out animated short retells the fable of Aesop, in which a small mouse proves that “the weak and small may be of help to those much mightier than themselves,” according to the National Film Board of Canada. Lambart made another Aesop-inspired film in 1980, “The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse.”
