On a desktop with many books, familiar characters in literature (such as Captain Kidd, Huckleberry Finn, Robinson Crusoe, and Rip Van Winkle) come out of their books after dark. When the book "Minstrel Days" is placed on the desk, the people who emerge from this book put on an old fashioned minstrel show, with comedians, an orchestra, chorus, and dancing girls. Written by

This was a great short. The politically correct will not find humor in the minstrel part, but I find it great. The PC crowd looks for things to be insulted over...reaching deep into history if need be to find it. This was humor...nothing more so don't let your imagination run away with you. Betty Hutton was great as was the whole cast. You can't judge 1939 by 2001 standards. Lighten up, get a grip and enjoy.
