A bunch of living deserts and various candies and sweets parade down a candyland main street. A candy girl is upset because she has nothing to wear until some gingerbread dude slathers her in frosting so she can join the parade. The story somewhat lost me after that but I was still pleasantly distracted by the deserts on show. It's hardly a Cinderella story.
The world created in the cartoon is certainly vivid and imaginative. The colors are bright and appealing, and might leave you craving candy afterwords. It kind of reminds me of the third level in James Pond II: RoboCod, or Watson's drug-induced nightmare in Young Sherlock Holmes.
A rare silly symphony that manages to still work in the 21st century.
