"This cartoon is based on the song "Histoires naturelles (Natural History )" (1906) by the French writer Renard known for "Carrots" and Ravel. The beautiful and funny animals of the rural village may be an irony for human society. The world of the French song is unfolded with gorgeous music and pictures.
