Quotes

Santa Claus: [Reading letter] "Dear Santy Claus, I'm Billy Brown / Here's a list I've jotted down / I want a giraffe and a duck and a whale / A cow and a pig with a seven-foot tail / A tiger that roars and a leopard with spots / A barrel of monkeys, a pony who trots / I want a baboon, a dog that'll bark / A walrus, a herring, a hog and a shark." Ha! I'll give him Noah's Ark.
Elf: But Billy Brown, for seven years, hasn't washed behind his ears.
Santa Claus: Well, ha-ha, there's still some hope. I'll just add a cake of soap.

Typically high-quality animation, but second-tier for Disney in the 1930s

This is a very good short and the animation is the quality you expect from Disney in this time-period. But it isn't one of the best Disney did in the 1930s, which should give you an idea just how great Disney was in the 1930s. No one else could consistently even come close to them until about 1938 or 1939. Other studios were doing good work, but until Disney started focusing more on features, they were all but alone at the top in terms of animated shorts. Well worth tracking down. Recommended.
