The Sun­shine Mak­ers (1935) — Rain­bow Parade

CotD: From the old Van Beuren Stu­dios comes “The Sun­shine Mak­ers” a gem of an gnome tale directed by Ted Eshbaugh.

The Sun­shine Mak­ers (1935) — Rain­bow Parade The­atri­cal Car­toon Series

This is the story of a com­mu­nity of happy, iden­ti­cal lit­tle gnomes who have the abil­ity to dis­till sun­shine into a bot­tled elixir. Any­one con­sum­ing this liq­uid imme­di­ately begins singing and caper­ing about in per­fect hap­pi­ness (despite the obvi­ously radioac­tive nature of the stuff; it causes an x-ray effect on any­one who drinks it or bathes in it).

In a gloomy for­est nearby lives a bunch of misery-loving gob­lins who only feel good when they feel bad. See­ing the sun­shine gnomes as a threat to their way of life, they mount a lame attack on the gnome vil­lage. The gnomes fight back by bom­bard­ing the gob­lins with bot­tles of the sun­shine elixir. Soon, the gob­lins are thor­oughly assim­i­lated and every­one is happy.
