"Water Babies" - very cute film, inspired loosely by Charles Kingsley's famous book about tiny 'water babies'. Makes me want to find my old copy of the book and read it.

"Merbabies" - How tiny and cute they are! They seem to have been freshly hatched, and resemble the water babies in another short. These babies frolic with fish and whales and swim around their castle, and it is IMPOSSIBLE not to think of "The Little Mermaid" - including imagining one tiny red-haired mermaid as a baby Ariel.

A rare Walt Disney classic, "The Brave Engineer" (1950), with musical direction by Santa Monica High School alum Ken Darby.

"Santa's Workshop" - Very cute look at the North Pole and Santa's workshop. Such films were made in the early third of the 20th century when Santa legends were still being created.
