Storyline

A young brother and sister bring home firewood to their poor mother. She gives them pieces of dried bread for supper and sends them to bed. The children dream of a land filled with ice cream cones, popcorn fields, and a chocolate syrup river. They wake up to a feast supplied by three of the merchants they passed on their way home the night before. Written by David Glagovsky <dglagovsky@prodigy.net>

A Classic
23 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I grew up in Northern NJ. Each Thanksgiving, after the Macy's parade was finished, WPIX (channel 11) showed "March of the Wooden Soldiers" with Laurel & Hardy. As long as I could remember, my sister and I watched this until I was 16, and they stopped the tradition.

Invariably, after the movie, there was filler time. They showed "Somewhere in Dreamland" as well as another classic Christmas cartoon that showed Santa's workshop (I REALLY wish I could remember the name of this cartoon.) These cartoons initiated the Christmas season for my sister and I as much as the parade or "Soldiers" did.

Recently, at my holiday party, someone won "Santa Conquers the Martians" as a gift. The DVD included Fleischer's "Somewhere in Dreamland." As we watched the cartoon, I felt as if I was 7 years old. What a great cartoon!
