A very catchy cartoon, in all. Despite the poor colour system in use which is often compounded with age, it is a very vibrant cartoon that doesn't dwell too much on the evils of the "grumpies" despite the simplistic storyline.

This is a wonderful cartoon! Some things left out of the synopsis: sunshine is bottled in milk bottles AND the cartoon was commissioned by a major dairy corporation. That commercialism doesn't hurt a bit. Favorite part: when the happy dwarf prepares to pour a bottle of sunshine down an Unhappy Creature's gullet and the U.C. resists. "I don't want to be happy! I want to be sad!" But the medication is forced down his throat and he rises with a smile and clicks his heels. The cartoon used to be shown on the original Mickey Mouse Club ("meeska, mooska, mouseketeer! Mouse cartoon time now is here!") in black and white. The color print I've seen was faded in one or two spots, particularly in the segment when the dwarf lookouts (in flower towers) are scanning for enemy airplanes. I would love to see a good copy. It used to be on a Blackhawk(?)video called "Cartoon Classics of the 30s and 40s" that included the first Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck cartoons, an Ub Iwerks classic "The Pincushion Man", and two Felix cartoons. I'd love to have that tape now!

I often sing the song of the Goblins for young children who are feeling sorry for themselves: "I'm happy when I'm sad. I'm always feeling bad" "How are you?" "Terrible!" "Fine, that's good." "I'm happy when I'm sad!"
Then I tell them about the Sunshine Men & they are enthralled by the story. I wish it were available today for kids to see.
