Storyline

The three sleepy children sail in their shoe-boat; they stall briefly on a cloud, then have various troubles with their fishing lines (one lands a fish-like star that ends up squirming in his pants). A star hooks two candy-cane baited lines together. The stars tease the baby while he's hanging overboard. A comet comes through; they catch it in a net and it tows them wildly, until they land in another cloud, where they are tossed by storms, eventually breaking their mast and sending them back to earth (and their bed, where we see they are really one boy).

Fine animation
1 September 2013 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

You'd be surprised at the quality of animation in this 75-year-old short. The ugly, cherub-like, children aside, the detail featured in this adaptation of Eugene Field's poem is of the sort usually seen in bigger budget features.

Three kids fly though space in their giant wooden shoe while fishing for stars (or fish-stars, rather). They eventually hook a comet and are dragged into a storm cloud and fall back down to Earth where it revealed to be all just a dream.

It didn't work for Boxing Helena or Dallas, but I'll accept it here. It's not a particularly famous cartoon, though it still holds up in many aspects today.
