The Tortoise and the Hare (Disney 1934)


One day a rabbit was boasting about how fast he could run. He was laughing at the turtle for being so slow. The rabbit thought this was a good joke and accepted the challenge. The fox was to be the umpire of the race. As the race began, the rabbit raced way ahead of the turtle, just like everyone thought. The rabbit got to the halfway point and could not see the turtle anywhere. He was hot and tired and decided to stop and take a short nap.

It is itself a variant of a common folktale theme in which ingenuity and trickery rather than doggedness are employed to overcome a stronger opponent. The story concerns a Hare who ridicules a slow-moving Tortoise. Tired of the Hare's arrogant behavior, the Tortoise challenges him to a race. When the Hare awakes however, he finds that his competitor, crawling slowly but steadily, has arrived before him. As in several other fables by Aesop, the lesson it is teaching appears ambiguous. An old Greek source comments that 'many people have good natural abilities which are ruined by idleness; on the other hand, sobriety, zeal and perseverance can prevail over indolence'. In the 19th century and after the fable was given satirical interpretations.
