I first saw this as a bonus feature on Disney's Pocahontas 2 which I
have thoroughly enjoyed ever since. It follows the story of a little
Indian (Native American) boy who wants to be a mighty warrior. All of
the animals in the forest mock him because he is just a child and can
do them no harm, but hen he corners a baby rabbit they take him more
seriously. Little Hiawatha fails to go through with it though and
pardons the bunny letting it go back to its parents. He then stumbles
upon an angry bear and the little forest animals help him on an
adventurous escape to flee from the beast, and in the end become his
friends like his brothers of nature.
The animation and movements are perfect which is typical of old school Disney cartoons. It is really enjoyable to watch these and see some of the actions or characters that Disney uses in later movies. For example the opossums swinging little Hiawatha throughout the trees is copied in The Jungle Book where the monkeys do the same with Mowgli. The story was entertaining, funny, and cute. All around a great little short.
