Well, here’s one you weren’t expecting.
Ferdinand The Bull (1936) was a charming children’s book by Munro Leaf about a sweet, non-violent bull who would rather smell the flowers than fight.
In 1938, the popular story was adapted into a memorable, Academy Award-winning animated cartoon by the Walt Disney studio.

On May 3rd, 1938 (isn’t is amazing the detailed information you get here?), the story of peace-loving Ferdinand was told in song by Slim & Slam, the seminal jazz duo who also gave us “Cement Mixer (Puti Puti)” and “Flat Foot Floogie (with a Floy Floy).” O-voutie!
