The Egg Cracker Suite (1943)
7min · Animation, Musical, Short · 22 March 1943
Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, in his last animated short, conducts a symphony with a whole gaggle of hens (and one ostrich) to lay eggs for Easter. Each rabbit gets an egg, and the smallest one is (un)lucky enough to get the ostrich egg. Eggs are hard-boiled, then dyed, then the baskets are filled with grass, one egg, candy eggs, and topped with a bow before being loaded onto planes to be delivered all over the world. The poor bunny with the ostrich egg, however, is also loaded up with them when the egg hatches before he could get it in a plane, but all ends well for Easter.
