The Kids in the Shoe (1935)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Mildly charming animated short from Dave Fleischer deals with a group of children who live inside a giant shoe with the elderly woman who takes care of them. What we basically see is that the children are well taken care of but they still want to have a little more fun so when their keeper goes to bed the kids break out a guitar and piano for some swing music. The Fleischer boys made so many cartoons that many of them were pretty middle-ground stuff that might have been seen as being much higher quality to a regular artist. When you have the name Fleischer you just expect high quality all the time so something in the middle like this can be overlooked. For the most part this short was cute enough and it certainly didn't overstay its 7-minute running time. The characters for the most part were entertaining but the highlight was certainly the song that gets played at the end. It was very catchy and you'll be tapping your feet to it just like the characters in the film.
