Pleasant "Screen Song" entry a holiday favorite
22 December 2005 | by (Nebraska) – See all my reviews

This "Screen Song" entry from Famous Studios is virtually plot less, but is still an engaging collection of images and scenes. Taking place inside a closed toy store, the toys come to life when the humans are gone, and promptly take part in a toy parade throughout the store. A toy soldier then professes his love for the "Queen of Toys" (still "mint in box"!).

This leads into a quaint rendition of "Oh, You Beautiful Doll", with the standard 'bouncing ball' that was well known for the time, but is essentially a period piece today.

Overall, a neat look at a past art form, and still enjoyable for today's audiences.
