The Brementown Musicians
Billy, the goat, Slim, the pig, and cat Nell, overhear when Farmer and his Wife decide that their donkey, Donny, is past his usefulness and his time is up. It’s up to them to warn Donny of his fate. Poor Donny! And he’s such a dreamer, too. In fact, he has a dream of becoming a famous musician one day. That’s it! He’ll leave the farm and follow that dream right to Brementown, the music mecca. As he starts his journey, he encounters Minnie, once a prize show dog, now no longer the pick of the litter. Minnie decides to throw her lot in with Donny, and the pair sets off. It isn’t long before Nell catches up with them. Recognizing the writing on the wall back at the farm, she decides to take her chances on Donny’s big idea, too. Of course, just because it was Donny’s idea doesn’t mean the others don’t have their opinions, as well. Their cacophonous attempt to make music jars the nerves.
