For years the "Hot Choc'late Soldiers" animated sequence, created by Walt Disney Studios, could not be shown as part of "Hollywood Party" because in 1934 Disney had licensed only movie-theatre rights and had reserved the TV rights to the sequence for his own company. Finally, in 1992, Ted Turner's company, which then owned the rights to the MGM archive, settled with the Disney company and released a video version of the film containing "Hot Choc'late Soldiers."

This is really a scrapbook of bits linked together by the word "party."
If you have ever wondered why The Three Stooges are so called, it is because they began life in vaudeville as the butt of Ted Healy's gags. In this film we see a rare instance of Healy and his stooges in action.
Classic is the piece where Lupe Velez teams up with Laurel and Hardy. A battle begins, which has since been quoted in a number of compilation films.
Perhaps the piece which steals the show is the colour cartoon by Disney. I have never ever seen it shown on Disney programmes, even though it is one of his best sequences.
It's worth watching just for these three features.
