Holiday Land is a 1934 American animated short film that was nominated at the 1934 Academy Awards for Academy Award for Best Animated Short Film but lost to The Tortoise and the Hare.[1][2] It was made by Screen Gems.


Scrappy, a young boy, wakened by his alarm clock, does not want to get up and go to school. Tossing in his bed, he wishes that "today was a holiday." The wind blows pages off his wall calendar, which produce "holidays" in the forms of their mascots, e.g. Father Time, Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, a Thanksgiving turkey, etc. Scrappy enjoys various holiday celebrations until he is awakened by his mother's voice. He quickly makes his morning ablutions, dresses, and eats a hasty breakfast, before diving under his bedclothes to dream again!
