Candybox illustrations
29 June 2015 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Famous Studios was not even calling this screen song as part of the series when it appeared in 1954; they would have the audience believe it one of their Noveltoon one-shots, even though it hews exactly to the format of the post-war Screen Songs.

It's "Ain't She Sweet" that gets the bouncing-ball treatment in this one. Given that choice, the candy motifs (it features the "Candybox Revue" in Sugarland), all of the characters are sweets. Unfortunately, the ham-handed way they announce their jokes, labeling the characters so the audience may know the joke without reflection, the out-of-date celebrity voice imitations and, of course, the elaborate "candybox" style of pictures.... well, this is a poor example of a formerly topnotch franchise. Alas, Paramount, Famous Studios' corporate master was not interested in anything more.
