Not everything Disney made turned out to be golden., 10 January 2014
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

In the 1930s, Disney was the top studio for animation. The quality of their work was without equal and the public adored them. So, I have no animosity against Disney cartoons of this era. However, I must admit that a few of their cartoons were NOT so wonderful and a small number were, despite GREAT animation, still very bad cartoons. This is the case with "Babes in the Woods"--a completely sub-par and creepy cartoon indeed.

This short begins with two Dutch-looking children with hollow, soul-less eyes running about--lost in the woods. They happen upon a group of gnomes that look like little Santas. However, after all their cavorting about, an evil witch arrives. She kidnaps the kids and tries to eat them and the kids respond by murdering her--but it's in self-defense! Then, all the forest creatures celebrate and the film ends. On top of everything, the music in this bizarre mess is terrible. Apart from nice animation, there really is nothing worth seeing in this weird and uber-creepy short film.
