Visually impressive, but otherwise predictable and undistinguished.

This was nominated for the Academy Award for Cartoon when it was released, which is a tad puzzling, since the only truly noteworthy feature here is the visual effects, which was true of most of the Fliescher Studio efforts. Given that other Flieschers released around the same time frame were as visually nice and were more effectively executed in other regards, it is somewhat surprising that this got a nomination. Part of the Color Classics series, this is an entertaining but quite predictable little short. It is available on the Somewhere In Dreamland DVD set, which is most definitely worth getting, as it is quite well done. Worth watching and recommended.
