Synopsis: A documentary on the dream based production of candy and modern methods of weight gain.
Comments: Here comes the sandman with his bag of sand. Well that's straightforward. There's a black kid sucking on his foot. I assume that's non stereotypical. Italian accent, but he's not eating meatballs. Pleasant candy based signage. Could Thurl Ravescroft have been doing the king's voice (he was 21 and had left Nebraska in 1933; http://www.allthingsthurl.com/biography.htm implies he would have been in California doing radio and singing, so it seems feasible)? All the men of Candyland have long thin mustaches and goatees. And almost all are bald. The cartoon teaches about bingeing and purging. Silhouette shot.
