Those Beautiful Dames

Those Beautiful Dames is a 1934 Merrie Melodies short directed by Isadore Freleng.


A poor orphan girl looks into a store window at all the pretty toys, then enters a run-down shack so she can escape the snowstorm. As she sleeps, the toys come to life, redecorate the shack and put on a show for the girl. They have a big party with lots of cake and ice cream.
