A "LITTLE" KNOWN PART OF HISTORY
Independent-minded, brimming with Yankee ingenuity, and cute as a colonial church mouse - that's Amos Mouse. Amos is the diminutive philospher and inventor behind Benjamin Franklin -according to Walt Disney's Academy Award nominated featurette, Ben and Me (1953), that is. This beguiling animated treat spotlights the pint-sized patriot of the "REAL" drafter of the Declaration of Independence. Talk about the mouse who started it all !
