Still image from The Remarkable Riderless Runaway Tricycle

A young boy abandons his tricycle on the sidewalk to play with a kite left on a pile of trash. The trash collectors mistakenly pick up the tricycle and take it to the junkyard. As it is about to be crushed, the tricycle magically escapes and proceeds to have an amazing adventure through town. It finally pedals back to the boy and a happy reunion. Nonverbal version, based on the book by Bruce McMillan.
