    German UFA Agfacolour animation film - second part. First part is found under same title on Pathe Master tape *PM2407* - Film ID 2407.08.


    German title reads `Deutsche Zeichenfilm - G.M.B.H. - Zeigt Einer Kurzfilm - Agfacolor - Armer Hansi'.

    Old paperwork reads - German UFA film - Agfa colour cartoon, telling story of a day's freedom of a canary.

    Little canary's adventure continues on a farm where he eats sunflower seeds, experiences rain and wind, gets scared by much bigger birds, and chased by a cat at night. He sees a little canary girl in a cage and falls in love. And they live together ever after in her little cage.

    End of the second part.

    First part contains the following:
    Canary is board in his cage. He sees a nice looking `girl' walking outside his widow and tries to escape. He succeeds. We see the little canary flying freely through air, playing with a scary looking kite and flying again until he gets dizzy and falls down a chimney. Comes out grey to join a choir of sparrows. They kick him out for spoiling their disability to sing and he ends up in a garden where he meets a girl again. He goes after her just to be kicked by her, much bigger, partner.

    Cataloguer's note - witty - fantastic colours - excellent film quality!
