Excellent silent mix of live-action and animation.

This is along the same lines as the Alice shorts Disney did in the 1920s, only the star isn't the live-action little girl but Ko-Ko the Clown, the first animated star Fleischer Studios had. Here, Ko-Ko has a series of adventures with a little girl who shrinks in size and goes with Ko-ko. Very well-executed and the ending is rather charming. At this point in time (up until The Skeleton Dance), it could easily be argued that the Fleischers were Disney's equal and in some ways, his superiors. They were certainly the principal competition until Warner Brothers and, later, MGM leapfrogged ahead of them and Fleischer Studios lost some steam. The Production Code and tunnel vision on their part played significant roles in their slow disintegration. But when they were hitting on all cylinders, they achieved great things. Well worth finding. Most recommended.
