A bunch of pixies perform “The Thieving Magpie” in the woods.

Given the title, I’m guessing these little folk in the woods are pixies, though they look a lot more like dwarfs, and that rather encapsulates the fantastic content of the piece. It’s similar to the superior RHAPSODY IN RIVETS from Warner Brothers, though that one (in which the Hungarian Rhapsody is performed to the building of a skyscraper) has a many more novel gimmicks. This one is good but not great; the gags are okay and it’s amusing enough to pass muster. There are no real standout gags in this one.
