The Grasshopper and the Ant
Story[edit | edit source]
A grasshopper sings and plays all summer without a thought for the coming winter. The ant however works hard through the summer, finding and storing food for the cold months to come. When winter arrives, the ant has plenty to eat, but the grasshopper starves to death.
Adaptations[edit | edit source]
The fable has been adapted to movies many times, the first being made by George Méliès in France in 1897. Walt Disney adapted the fable for an animated movie in 1934. The Disney version featured the song, "The World Owes Me a Living", which later that year became a Shirley Temple hit.
