The truth about mother goose 2large

The Truth About Mother Goose is a Disney animated short that was released on August 28, 1957 in a double feature with Perri. It was produced by Walt Disney Productions and distributed by Buena Vista Film Distribution.

It explains the historical backgrounds of three popular nursery rhymes: "Little Jack Horner", which is based on a story about a servant who stole the deed for an estate intended for King Henry VIII of England. "Mary, Mary Quite Contrary", which is about Mary, Queen of Scots, and "London Bridge", which concerns the history of the real bridge, which "fell down" and was rebuilt.

It was later re-edited into a Wonderful World of Color episode alongside Mickey and the Beanstalk, with both segments being re-edited to feature narration from Ludwig Von Drake.
