Beauty And The Beast (1934) — Mer­rie Melodies Car­toon Series

A lit­tle girl is eat­ing too many snacks when she doesn’t real­ize that it is her bed­time. Then the Sand­man comes out of nowhere and, sure enough, the girl falls asleep in the blink of an eye. Just then, she has a dream that she is in Toy­land, where she encoun­ters all kinds of fairy tale characters.

They sing her a wel­come song and then meet a friendly toy sol­dier for the first time while march­ing in a Toy­land parade. Just then, they open a book called “Beauty and the Beast” and sing the title song from out of the pages, but as soon as they are about to get to the next page, a hor­ri­ble, mon­strous beast is about to take her captive.

Sure enough, it’s an all-out brawl between the girl and the beast. Even a toy air­plane can’t soothe the sav­age beast. When she real­izes that it’s all a bad dream, she gets scared and jumps back into bed, but when she cov­ers her­self with the blan­ket, the flap of her paja­mas hangs out when she goes back to sleep.
