Storybook Films

Enjoy three short animated films that bring storybooks to life! Families with little ones will love these fashionable and fun tales. This film is part of MFAH Family Day: Work It! Fashion in Art.

Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed
Wilbur is different from the other Naked Mole Rats in his colony, because he wears clothes—and he likes it! But what will happen when Grand-pah—the oldest, wisest, and most-naked Naked Mole Rat ever—discovers Wilbur’s secret? Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed is a gentle story about not quite fitting in, and about expressing one’s own individuality. Narrated by Trixie, Mo, and Cheryl Willems. (9 minutes)

Joseph Had a Little Overcoat
Joseph the tailor is very resourceful. When his overcoat becomes old and worn, he remakes it into a jacket. Then he remakes his jacket into a vest, and so on, until he has nothing left. Then he even makes something out of that! Narrated by Rob Reiner and featuring authentic klezmer music. (10 minutes)

Brave Irene

In the face of a fierce snowstorm, Irene summons up all her courage when her mother falls ill and Irene must deliver a ballgown to the duchess. Narrated by Lindsay Crouse. (13 minutes)
