Somewhere In Dreamland

From the Fleischer Color Classics series, today we celebrate Somewhere In Dreamland. While this was not the first cartoon in the Color Classics series, it does have the unique distinction of being the first from the series produced in three-strip Technicolor. The prior shorts were all done in the inferior two-strip process.

A poignant story of two poor children who are out collecting firewood when they pass by a toy store, market and finally a bakery. They drool over the wares in the bakery window but walk away before the owner can come out and present them with two cupcakes. The kids go home and eat a meager supper before going to bed. They both dream they are in dreamland, where everything is free-cookies, candy, cakes, popcorn and toys. When they wake up, it’s all gone, but the three merchants have stopped by to lay out a huge feast for them. Lovely story with timeless music.
