Cartoon Summary:

This is the story of a community of happy, identical little gnomes who have the ability to distill sunshine into a bottled elixir. Anyone consuming this liquid immediately begins singing and capering about in perfect happiness (despite the obviously radioactive nature of the stuff; it causes an x-ray effect on anyone who drinks it or bathes in it).

In a gloomy forest nearby lives a bunch of misery-loving goblins who only feel good when they feel bad. Seeing the sunshine gnomes as a threat to their way of life, they mount a lame attack on the gnome village. The gnomes fight back by bombarding the goblins with bottles of the sunshine elixir. Soon, the goblins are thoroughly assimilated and everyone is happy.

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...  (read more)

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...  (read more)
