What it is: Revue style Mother Goose pastiche
A series of gags involving Mother Goose rhymes are presented, often to a swinging beat.
It’s your basic somewhat uninspired array of themed sight gags. There’s a running gag involving Simple Simon, and gags pop up involving Mary’s little lamb, Little Bo Peep, Little Jack Horner, Jack Be Nimble, and an accelerated take on the House that Jack Built. The end result is what you’d expect, and none of the gags really come to life. Not a high point.
