Cartoon Summary:


A retelling of the story of John Chapman, who spent his life roaming America and planting apple trees, thus earning his nickname. He's an apple farmer who sees people going West and thinks that he can't join them until an angel appears to him and sings the virtues of apples, convincing Chapman that he has a mission. He sets off without a knife or gun. At first, the animals mistrust him, but when he even treats a skunk kindly, they all take to him.
