A conductor, in silhouette against sheet music, leads the title tune, which dissolves into a series of placid landscapes. As the music picks up, we see a water wheel, then a dancing fairy emerges from a whirlpool and begins singing, to the delight of small woodland creatures. The birds awaken sleeping cherubs, who begin their work of harvesting all things blue and adding them to the river. The birds even do their part, harvesting the color blue from the rainbow. Everyone tugs to open a floodgate and unleash the cerulean waters. A swan, festively decorated, leads a gondola of sorts lit by fireflies. Written by

This is a short 'film' that is so well worth seeing that I believe it should be on general release so that our younger generation may have the chance to view it. The drawings are of such a beautiful quality and set to a piece f popular and well known music, this takes your imagination and feeds it with a fuel that can last a lifetime. As you can tell this cartoon had a profound effect on me as a small child and I have never forgotten it in all my years. Now in my middle years I would like to revisit it, but I have no idea where I could get hold of a copy. Can anyone help? I would very much like to show my 5yr old niece who loves fairies and has an amazing imagination. If you know where I can get hold of this then please write and let me know. If you haven't seen it then I urge you strongly to try.
