The housekeeper does her best to get nourishing food into Little Audrey, but the only thing Audrey wants is candy. And she wants lots of it. The housekeeper banishes Audrey to her room, but the cunning girl has sweets hidden in bags that hang outside her bedroom window. The angry servant finds every last piece of candy in the room and takes it away. Soon, Audrey has candy withdrawal and even gets the sweet-tooth version of delirium tremens. A nightmare sends her to a Candy Horror Land where evil candy canes and sinister licorice drops force-feed her all the candy she doesn't want. Written by J. Spurlin

A delightful lesson in nutrition and deportment
23 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A dark spin on a common childhood fantasy (of a candy land)

Little Audrey, that topknotted, blue-frocked cartoon cutie, would rather eat candy than a balanced lunch, so she enjoys the sugary yumminess while feeding her lunch to her dog. This annoys the maid of her house no end, so the irate servant sends the little girl to her room and confiscates all her stash of sweets. Audrey then fantasizes about visiting a candy land, where she pigs out on every delectable confection imaginable, her face all aglow. Umpteen chocolates, mints, caramels, and licorice kisses later, however, the poor Audster ain't feelin' quite so glowy. Matter of fact, she's feeling mighty poorly. Remember the "Tummy Ache" the song "Good Ship Lollipop warned of? Audrey's got it in spades! Candy monsters narrate her painful plight with a catchy tune and a creative fantasy sequence that leaves her regretting the pig she's made of herself and thinking that nutritious foods can be quite tasty after all.

Everyone complained about the stereotype of the maid, but this was a relic of a time when minorities were held in lower regard in pop culture. Anyway, this cartoon is a sweet (if a little dark) way to teach a child the concept of "enough," or just to enjoy a choice bit of animation
