Edna May Oliver's daughter won' drink her milk until she is told where milk comes from in this amusing Terrytoon.

This is the third cartoon I've seen Edna May Oliver and W.C. Fields -- he's the guy in charge of the cows -- although their screen careers did not intersect noticeably -- both were in the 1933 ALICE IN WONDERLAND and the 1935 David COPPERFIELD, although they had no significant on screen interactions. However, each had a distinctive look and voice, Fields was famous as a misogynist and Miss Oliver made a specialty of playing maiden aunts.

As for the story, that is also subject to speculation. In 1935, Van Beuren produced a famous documentary about milk, THE SUNSHINE MAKERS, while Mannie Davis was working there. Although he was not credited -- no one was; it was directed by Ted Eshbaugh and Burt Gillett uncredited -- he may have worked on it and if, not, had some thoughts on the matter.
