A poor shoemaker and his wife have only a stale donut and a cup of coffee left to share. An elf drops by, and they offer to share with him. He teaches them (in song) to dunk the donut in the coffee. Later, as they sleep, he brings several other elves back, and they work through the night making shoes in humorous ways. The shoes are a success. Soon, the shoemaker and his wife are quite prosperous. They treat the elves to a feast of donuts and coffee, and the elves treat us to another chorus of "Dunk! Dunk! Dunk!".Written by

Who would have thought that elves were so partial to doughnuts?
This short, nominated for an Academy Award, is an adaptation of the fairy tale about the shoemaker and the elves. It's one of Lantz studios musical shorts and features a lot of the basic sight gags that have become so familiar if you've watched any of the adaptations of this particular story before. Good cartoon, well animated and entertaining, especially for those who really like doughnuts! Worth watching. Recommended.
