The toys present a musical revue on their own radio station. First, three dolls sing, then a jack-in-the-box doing a Bing Crosby impression joins in. Then an instrumental piece, with a bead man dancing on a xylophone, a couple of dolls playing matched toy pianos, and various characters dancing on the keyboards. A violinist plays his tune actually, the violin dances around, doing most of the work. A calico dog sings, "I think that I shall never see, a poem lovely as a tree." Written by Jon Reeves <>

Charmingly animated
10 November 2003 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This animated film has some beautiful drawings that are ahead of its time. Though some parts might be considered un-politically correct by todays standards (it features golliwogs and the Sambo Jazz band), the drawings and music are beautifully done.
