The Mascot (1934)

Quite possibly the greatest thing I have ever seen. It is a bit nutty, but it is a happy ending. It also has a great soundtrack.

The Mascot - 1934 You can watch it all without it being broken up and a bit better quality here

The story is off the hook. A mother is worried about her child, and puts her tears into the stuffed dog she makes for the girl. As she sleeps, the mother has a dream that the dog—this symbol of the mother's love, searches for something that will make the daughter feel better. The illness happening inside the girl is visualized as a party of demons making mischief, but the faithful dog protects the orange and escapes, bringing it back to the girl, and this is what cures her of her illness.

and the last part:

Take the 28 minutes or so and watch this. You will not be disappointed.
