Hot Choc-late Soldiers, The (film) Color Silly Symphony-type sequence produced for the MGM film, Hollywood Party (1934). The Hot Chocolate Soldiers leave home to battle the Gingerbread Men of Pastry Land, using all sorts of candies and pastries as weapons. The soldiers capture the Gingerbread Men with a “Trojan Horse” trick—a giant candy dish of a dove holding an olive branch. The soldiers return home triumphant with their prisoners, only to melt in the hot sun. Directed by Ben Sharpsteen.
