285. Lambert the Sheepish Lion – Jack Hannah

SUMMARY: Lambert the baby lion is mistakenly left with a flock of sheep by the stork and is raised thinking he’s a sheep… until a wolf brings out the lion in him.

WHY IT’S HERE: Disney’s ‘Lambert the Sheepish Lion’ is a typically lush production and plays like a little movie. Disney’s more recent nominess had largely been fairly dull affairs and the studio was conspicuous by its absence in 1950, only the second time this had happened since the Academy Awards inception. ‘Lambert the Sheepish Lion’ is a glorious return to form. The story of a lion cub accidentally delivered to a sheep, it features everything Disney has come to be known for. Sweetness, warmth, great storytelling, a few big laughs and an infectious theme tune, not to mention hilarious narration from Disney stalwart Sterling Holloway, pre-his star turn as Winnie the Pooh.
