The Adventures of Benjamin Pink (1951)

This fanciful tale about a small, gentlemanly rabbit and his sea-voyage adventures ambles along, somewhat sleepily at times, but the animal characters encountered on the way are enchanting creations. It was a wonderful day for Mr. Pink when, after being shipwrecked on an island, he finds a chest full of treasure. In spite of the warnings of an amused old turtle, Benjamin is determined to bring back his treasure to his village and do Good Works. A strange sojourn on an island of some happy-go-lucky monkeys and a failure to convince that wily old politician, Mayor Tom Cat, and his cronies that he has the treasure, turns Benjamin’s mind to the simpler pleasures.
