I remember being 4 or 5 years old and actually being frightened by the last of these 3 cartoons. Something had lifted the veil of comedy for me and I was filled with dread by two obese children, blinded by their greed, gorging themselves on candy, oblivious to the fact that a toothless old lady gleefully prepares to cook them alive and cannibalize them. All for our amusement.
How horrible.
I feel the need to listen to some Jacques Brel.
(p.s. - that last line of dialogue = 1954)
