After the last human has left the department store, the toys walk over to the music department where they start performing the Warren/Dubin song "We're in the money". The money soon joins for a chorus, as well as display dolls in the wardrobe department.Written by

This cartoon was colorized in 1992 by Turner Entertainment Company, with each frame traced over onto a cel. Each cel was then painted in color and photographed over a colored reproduction of each background. See more »
The first few Merrie Melodies were not particularly original or inventive - the best years were yet to come - but this Harman/Ising production based around the Dubin/Warren tune from 'Gold Diggers of 1933' is OK.
The basic premise surrounds a group of toys who start to walk, talk, sing and play instruments when the shop owner has gone to bed. In a blatant plug for the song (which Warners owned), toys, hats, and the like join together in chorus.
The trouble is there were quite a few cartoons with the same plot, all using a song as a centre, and this is nothing new. As a historical document though, it has its interest.
