Director: Norman McLaren
"Mon Merle", an old French folksong, sung by the Trio Lyrique of Montreal, tells the story of a happy-go-lucky bird who loses his neck, beak. wings and eyes but immediately sets about retrieving them. To his astonishment they return in duplicate and triplicate. Norman McLaren in his inimitable style has used simple cut-outs on a pastel background to portray the action of the song.
