Apologue – n. a moral fable, especially one with animals as characters.
The apologues you probably know are Aesop’s fables, like the Tortoise and the Hare or the Ant and the Grasshopper, and you could probably say that most of Disney’s animated movies are like apologues.
See if you can figure out the message behind this Aesop’s fable adaptation from the 30s. I think it means that if you kill your camel in the desert you’ll have to escape from a whole bunch of Egyptian skeletons.
