Countdown to Christmas: Parade of the Wooden Soldiers (1933)

It seems so fitting that our Countdown to Christmas for this year begins with a cartoon set in a toy store.

"Parade of the Wooden Soldiers" is not your average Betty Boop cartoon. Betty is a toy herself in this entry, released on December 1, 1933. The film starts with a short instrumental performance by David Rubinoff and his orchestra before giving way to the story itself.

Typical Fleischer surreality. That's all I can say.

Rating: B--.
