Mother Goose Melodies is a 1931 Silly Symphonies animated film, directed by Burt Gillett. Two years later it was semi remade in Technicolor as Old King Cole.


Old King Cole summons various Mother Goose characters for his entertainment; including the Three Blind Mice as his "fiddlers three", Miss Muffet, Jack and Jill (who meet Simple Simon atop the hill), Humpty Dumpty (whom Mother Goose's goose knocks of his wall), Jack Horner (his Christmas pie also containing the four and twenty blackbirds), Bo Peep (Boy Blue brings the sheep home, one of which falls in mud to become Baa Baa Black Sheep) and the Cat, Cow and Little Dog.
