Foney Fables is a 1942 Merrie Melodies short directed by Friz Freleng.

Plot

A collection of brief vignettes within the Book of Fairy Tales includes much-loved stories like Sleeping Beauty (chewed out by Prince Charming for sleeping in), Tom Thumb, the Grasshopper and the Ant (the grasshopper can afford to be lazy because he has war bonds), the Boy Who Cried Wolf, Jack and the Beanstalk, the Wolf in Sheep's Clothing ("the fifth columnist of his day"), Aladdin and His Lamp, the Goose That Laid the Golden Eggs (only they're aluminum for the war effort), Old Mother Hubbard (but her cupboard isn't bare; she's a "food hoarder"!), and This Little Piggy. The Boy Who Cried Wolf gets his comeuppance, canceling the Story of Cinderella.
