Oh, now you would have to be a real stone-cold meany-pants to not derive at least a little joy from this very old but very sweet and charming animation, I mean it is all about a strange fantasy land of walking-talking candy people who are hosting a giant parade that's all just to plain celebrate sweet treats of all colours shapes and sizes everywhere - hooray!!! And naturally there are some great confectionery and chewy-gooey sight gags to feast your eyes on. I love the design of the train that brings the little urchin boy into the town, if you look closely what's it made out of is quite intricate and cleverly put together. And I also enjoy the Easter egg float with the chicks inside, and my favourite one was definitely the Santa Claus jelly, all of it is so totally yummers! And that's a strange inherent element that comes with the animations of this type that I always love, the way that tend to make you hungry and wanna take a bite out of 'em! And I love that cosy warm image of the old-fashioned candy shop like in the original Willy Wonka that is shown at the beginning. The fly sure seemed to think it was pretty good! Gross, by the way.. It's a lovely short but to me it's a little thin somewhere and felt like a rehearsal for greater, very similar animations such as the classic Silly Symphony "The Cookie Carnival" and 1934's "The Hot Choc-Late Soldiers", two cartoons that I like just that little bit more than this one, not because they're Disney brand specifically so to speak per-se, but because they seemed to do more with the 'Candyland' premise and were more polished and endearing than this, which while fine, is in my opinion a little dull and rough around the edges in comparison. And what really made those two so much fun was the presentation, their tiny plots were really no more complex this one's, although quite unlike this, they at least had a little conflict in them. Heck, even Cookie Carnival had trials of a sort for its hero! The little boy who I think is supposed to be the main character of this story just seems to vanish from it as soon as the all-dancing all-popping spectacle of the edible town appears! Anyway whatever, it remains to this day a very good festive celebration of sweetness that you'd do well to seek out and enjoy anytime. Thank you, be seein' ya, and with all sincerity, a very Happy New Year to you!!!
