Penguins and polar bears?!
17 August 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Okay, I have to get this off my chest. Why did Disney put polar bears and penguins together? Not only would the bears eat the penguins, but they come from completely opposite parts of the world! Yes, I know that Coke also puts these two critters together but in the wild this would never happen. Trust me on this folks.

Now that I have gotten this off my chest, let's get to the film "Arctic Antics". It's a very good black & white cartoon from Disney marketed under the 'Silly Symphonies' label. These were generally very sweet little cartoons with lots of critters dancing about to the music---and not the familiar sort of characters like Mickey and Donald. In the case of this film, lots of cute animals dance about in the frozen North--all accompanied by the usual sort of musical score. While the animation is not among the company's best, it is quite enjoyable and gets points for being quite cute without being cloying. Well worth seeing.
