Somewhere in Dreamland was a 1936 film based on the titular song. This film was part of Max Fleischer's Color Classics series. The film was produced by Max Fleischer, directed by Dave Fleischer, and was animated by Fleischer veterans Seymour Kneitel and Roland Crandall.

A young brother and sister carry a wagon through town, gathering wood planks and logs for their home stove. They pass by five merchants' shops: a tinker's, a tailor's, a toy merchant's, a butcher's, and a baker's. The children stop for a moment, to admire the confectioneries in the window. They lick the window to pretend they're tasting the cupcakes. As he sees the children, a friendly baker goes inside, and comes back with cupcakes for them, but the children have already left. The merchants gather to make a plan, because they want to help those poor children. The children reach home, and they are welcomed by their mother with a kiss. They sit down to supper: hard bread and flat water. The children eat quickly, with the boy saying "But I'm still hungry, Ma." She then cries, because they are very poor, due to the Great Depression. The boy tries to make her feel better by assuring her that he was "only foolin'" and their mother kisses them goodnight. They get in their pajamas, and they each sing a part of the song, as they fall asleep beneath their very tattered sheets. The mother extinguishes the candle light, and sadly retires for the night.

In their sleep, they enter a land with a welcome sign, an arch of pillows with the word "Dreamland". They happily frolic through the wondrous land, which includes trees where they can pick beautiful clothes and shoes, a syrup river, an ice cream cone field with lilies pouring chocolate and caramel syrups, an animal cracker carousel, a field of popcorn-making corn stalks accompanied by literal buttercups to dip the popcorn in, wonderful toys, and two luxurious beds. They laugh happily, and fall asleep, only to wake up the next morning. To their surprise, a large feast is on the kitchen table, as well as toys and clothing surrounding the room, all of which was provided by the Merchants. The children look up to the kind merchants, asking twice if all these things are for them. The merchants nod and reply "All for you, yes!" The children shout in joy, and begin to eat. The boy, however, suspicious of this good fortune, sticks a fork in his bottom to ensure they aren't just dreaming again (they're not). The children laugh and continue to eat, as the chorus "Somewhere in dreamland, tonight" plays. and all content © 2015 ComedyMX LLC. All rights reserved. Unauthorized use is prohibited.
