At the Nickelodeon: The Cookie Carnival (1935) by Disney dir. Ben Sharpsteen

Is anyone else feeling overwhelmed and sugar-shocked from a surplus of Christmas cookies still lingering around the cupboard?

This is one of my favorite Silly Symphonies  - it was released in 1935 as an homage to the Atlantic City  boardwalk parade and bathing beauty contest (that eventually became the Miss America pageant) of the 1920s and 30s.

Watch this a few times to ensure you catch all of the amazing, whimsical details.
