Perfect Number Watches VeggieTales "Lyle the Kindly Viking" (2001)

Maybe "King George and the Ducky" comes closest? Because the lesson is that King George's "selfishness" hurt other people (and we are to understand that hurting other people is bad). And because when the "slightly odd wise man" comes and tells King George the story of the rich man who stole the poor man's only sheep, the king is angry because he feels empathy- and that's the turning point of the story.

Actually, I seem to remember I was taught "it's bad to use your money/possessions to 'buy' friends, then they only care about what they can get from you, they don't care about you" which was SO CONFUSING because I was also taught it's good to be generous and give to other people. (Also Jesus' "Parable of the Shrewd Manager" was [and still is] confusing as hell.)
