Spring is indeed in the air, and this is a pretty darn good tribute to the springtime
14 October 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I really loved this Silly Symphony. Why? Everything is good about it. First of all, there is stunning black and white animation, that after all this time, doesn't look at all dated. Second, is the appealing characters, then again, I love all the characters in all the Silly Symphonies; they never fail to bring a smile to my face. Third, is the music. Now I look out for this element, every time I review a film, cartoon or TV programme on IMDb. Most of the short contained wonderful classical music favourites like Morning from Peer Gynt by Grieg and Dance of the Hours from La Giaconda(also used in Fantasia) by Ponchielli. All in all, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! Bethany Cox
