Title: Charm Bracelet
Running time (of viewed version): 5:49
Synopsis: Margie loves bracelet, goes to sleep, bracelet lives its life to the fullest without Margie.
Comments: There's a pleasant beige puffiness to the backgrounds, like a pillow of shredded wheat. Odd seeing little kids being shown in a relationship. Kissing your charm bracelet doesn't seem right. Ah yes, the bracelet's charms come to life, thus allowing Scrappy to get ditched from the cartoon. Another appearance of the three monkeys (a the three monkeys, not the same the three monkeys...). Phone number: HO 2097. There's almost a feeling of Famous Studios simplicity in some of the cels. And not just because there's a jack in the box. The bird looks kinda like Buzzy. Lot of pushing in/ zoom shots. (Note that charm bracelets were a fad for girls that lasted for a few generations, but have been long gone as big cultural thing for awhile now.)
