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.
