An inebriated stork is tasked with the job of delivering a giant’s baby. When the baby is misdelivered, an ordinary-sized family has to cope with a giant baby.

Though the giant baby does show a certain resemblance to Elmer Fudd, this is a one-off cartoon that at least partially serves as a parody of an educational film about the care and maintenance of a baby. Though it’s not one of the studio’s better entries, it does have a few good moments; my favorite is the scene where a giant tries to change a diaper on a normal-sized baby. The fantastic content is represented by the whole “stork delivering the baby” cliche, plus the existence of giants (living at “the top of the beanstalk”. It’s an okay entry from the studio.
