CotD: “Somewhere In Dreamland ” was Fleischer Studios first cartoon filmed completely in Technicolor.
Somewhere In Dreamland (1936) – Color Classics Theatrical Cartoon Series
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.
