This has always been one of my favorite cartoons, but I wasn't really moved by it until I was an adult and could appreciate the parental nightmare of not being able to properly feed and clothe your kids. The part that gets me the worst is when they go to bed, and their blankets are so threadbare there's hardly any blanket at all.
We need more people in the world like those shop owners.
On a lighter note....man, Dreamland looks amazing. All of it is great, but the part that I love the most is the popcorn field, where popcorn shoots out of the corn stalks and the buttercups have actual melted butter in them.
