| Delightful Disney Cartoon
A Walt Disney SILLY SYMPHONY Cartoon Short.

A hobo gingerbread man helps a sweet young thing become queen of THE COOKIE CARNIVAL. Varied male desserts now vie for her attention, but who will she select to be her king?

An excellent example of the wealth of imagination Disney was developing. Cookie & dessert motifs abound throughout this cartoon. That's Pinto Colvig, normally heard as Goofy, who voices the gingerbread man. And who wouldn't love to see more of Miss Jello?

The SILLY SYMPHONIES, which Walt Disney produced for a ten year period beginning in 1929, are among the most interesting of series in the field of animation. Unlike the Mickey Mouse cartoons in which action was paramount, with the Symphonies the action was made to fit the music. There was little plot in the early Symphonies, which featured lively inanimate objects and anthropomorphic plants & animals, all moving frantically to the soundtrack. Gradually, however, the Symphonies became the school where Walt's animators learned to work with color and began to experiment with plot, characterization & photographic special effects. The pages of Fable & Fairy Tale, Myth & Mother Goose were all mined to provide story lines and even Hollywood's musicals & celebrities were effectively spoofed. It was from this rich soil that Disney's feature-length animation was to spring. In 1939, with SNOW WHITE successfully behind him and PINOCCHIO & FANTASIA on the near horizon, Walt phased out the SILLY SYMPHONIES; they had run their course & served their purpose.
