More of a follow-up to 'Song of the South', Disney's adaptation of the novel by Sterling North uses many of the same cast and a similar mix of live action and animation. Set in 1903 the film follows the story of Jeremiah and his dream to win first prize in a local pet contest with his pet sheep Danny. But things conspire against him, notably his grandmother who believes he is entering the contest for the wrong reasons. However, after Danny is lost and then found, Jeremiah's grandmother relents; but despite not winning the contest Jeremiah and his family realise an important lesson in life.

This Disney tale of childhood innocence is very simple; there are no tragedies on the road to a happy ending, just an amazingly cute little boy and his ornery lamb. As Jerry, Bobby Driscoll didn't have to do anything for me to fall in love with him (although he's a very good actor!); just one look at that beautiful face was enough to send me reaching for the tissues. Beulah Bondi is perfect as his crotchety Granny and a young Burl Ives add country charm and good singin' as his Uncle Hiram. The lamb really doesn't have much personality and doesn't do much (and in fact, looks suspiciously like a white lamb with a dye job), but that's okay; it's all about sweet nostalgia and looking back at a simpler, happier time.
There are several animated interludes where the animals in Jerry's scrapbook come to life and sing songs of wisdom and encouragement. It's all done very well and even if it's too unsophisticated for today's kids, their parents and grandparents will surely love this 1948 gem.
It is a slight tale but despite the 1900 setting it should still entertain and captivate its target audience as it did this forty something man so well.
