Comments

From Walter Moores : Even though Hot Chocolate Soldiers is not a feature cartoon, it is a fantastic cartoon. Embedded in the Jimmy Durante movie "Hollywood Party", Jimmy and Mickey Mouse introduce the cartoon to entertain the guests at Jimmy's party. The idea, color, and the Chocolate War was sheer brilliance! Arthur Freed's singing shows he was a multi-talented movie genius. Nothing today can equal the quality of this cartoon.
