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 truly charming and well-made gem
29 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

Somewhere in Dreamland is very typical of the style of Dave Fleischer--two angelic kewpie-like children live in terrible poverty but dream of a world of limitless candy and toys. In spite of the overly cute premise and the fact that these children are interchangeable with the children in every other Fleischer cartoon, Somewhere in Dreamland is an adorable film, which excellent animation, especially in the dream sequence. For such an early cartoon, the level of detail is quite impressive--when the kids go to bed, both their pajamas and their blankets are shabby and ridden with holes. It's a shame that cartoons like this are no longer very popular--it's hard for kids today to relate to a cartoon where every body behaves incredibly saintly, and the only villain they have to face is the ever-looming Depression. But Somewhere in Dreamland is a lovely gem that remains a tribute to the inspiring optimism of the 1930's.
