Greedy Humpty Dumpty (1936)


Humpty Dumpty is incredibly wealthy, sitting on his gold every day. But it’s not enough for him. He wants more and more. He catches a glimpse of the sun and believes it’s made of gold — leading him to command his subjects to build a wall so that he can reach the sun. His people tried to warn him of the dangerous truths, but he didn’t listen! When Humpty Dumpty attempted to break the sun so gold can come out, instead flames and lightning appeared, attacking Humpty Dumpty. The sun’s power, knocks down Humpty Dumpty’s palace wall, causing him to fall and shatter to pieces. The people put the broken shells back on, but when the crown was put back on, Humpty Dumpty collapsed. The classic rhyme is then sung:

“Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again”
