Plenty of Money and You is a 1937 cartoon directed by Friz Freleng.


All of a hen's eggs hatch, but one of them turns out to be an ostrich. She however keeps it as one of her own. The ostrich has a knack for getting into trouble. He shows this by getting stuck after eating a goldfish, then falling into an basement where he swallows a car jack whole, then having a run-in involving a worm and a lawn sprinkler, and last but not least being captured by a weasel. The weasel is singing while he prepares to cook the ostrich. The ostrich at the mean time swallows a hanging light bulb; a box of fireworks, and those set off after he's put in the oven. The weasel iratated at this point decides to let the ostrich go. At the end the Ostrich puts on a fireworks show.
