Synopsis: Coffee pot reminisces on a rainy day about a time when it wasn't raining.
Comments: Open on live action. Incessant whistling. Kettles, teapot and a kettle. Pointless live action reaction shots. OK, probably not pointless, in that it likely saved on the cost of actually making animation. Mr. Coffeepot's wife doesn't appear to get her own name (perhaps because she kept her maiden name of teapot for professional reasons, and this was frowned upon at the time). I'm not sure if the cow is actually Molly or not. Fairly well made but decidedly not good.
