Another Sing-A-Long, This One Featuring Cookies
11 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a musical more than anything else with cookie characters dancing and singing. We seen visual puns on the various types of sweets, such as Lady fingers walking, an upside- down cake on the ceiling, a drunk rum cake, a goofy nut cake, etc., all going to the famous "Cookie Carnival."

At the carnival, "Danny Doughnut" does a death-defying dive into a cup of coffee

After the jokes, we come to the second part in which that southern favorite "Shorten' Bread," leads us and the bouncing ball into chorus of the song by the same name. This is strictly for young kids and for kids most likely 60 years ago. This is a bit corny for today's crowd, except maybe really young children.

Note: The title on the cartoon reads "Short'nin' Bread," which is spelled differently than what's on the title page here.
