"The Chicken King"

The Lion King is a 1994 Academy Award winning animated film from Walt Disney Animation Studios. Taking much of its story from William Shakespeare's Hamlet, the film is one of the highest grossing animated films of all time, and was adapted for the Broadway stage in 1997.


  • A 1995 episode of Sesame Street features "The Chicken King," directed by Walt Dizzy. In the film, a lion who wants to be king tries and fails to turn a corn cob into an egg, and is bested by Elmo (in a chicken outfit) who eats the corn and in turn lays an egg.
