Storyline

A boy, attracted by the same confectionery display that attracts a fly, goes inside and starts eating. A cherub, threatened by him, offers a wish, and the kid asks to live in candyland full time. A train takes him there, where a cupcake king greets him and we see a lavish parade of various goodies, including another group of three cherubs that parody the Three Stooges.

Boy's Candy Fantasy
8 February 2019 | by VimaconeSee all my reviews

Columbia's cartoon legacy has been largely forgotten in recent decades, some of it for good reason. There are some gems to be found in their library. To their credit, they did make some very polished cartoons, although not as imaginative as Disney's or Schlesinger's.

This short follows the pattern of a Silly Symphony of a child's fantasy world. Particularly, Depression era themed with a disadvantaged child. This contains lots of lush visuals of candy. It does hold up closely to some of Disney's best visuals with minimal effects animation.

This was a common theme in cartoons in the 30s and was no doubt well received by audiences. If only this was officially available.
