Storyline

It's autumn and the squirrels are busy collecting nuts for the winter. One squirrel is determined to shake the last nut from an otherwise barren tree. When he finally does so, it proves not to be a nut at all, but a caterpillar that was trying to become a butterfly. The squirrels are collecting corn cobs too, but a crafty crow is not above stealing them out of the squirrels' tree. The crow brings them back to his fellows, where they store them in a scarecrow's long underwear. A skunk is having bad luck trying to shove an oversized pumpkin through an undersized tree hole and succeeds only in smashing it to bits. A porcupine has a clever way to collect apples: on his quills. The beavers bark and dance happily as they build their dam. The ducks quack merrily as they eat worms. Then winter approaches and all the animals must find shelter. Some will find it easier than others. Written by J. Spurlin

Not among the best in this series...
18 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

The 'Silly Symphonies' were a long series of short films by Disney in which songs were used to tell stories. However, despite the popularity of Mickey, Donald and the rest, the Symphonies were devoted to a wide variety of one-shot characters. Most were animals but skeletons and even demons were used on occasion. In "Autumn" a wide variety of cutesy animals roam about--mostly getting ready for the winter. While I like the Silly Symphonies, this one was awfully bland--with art that wasn't quite as good as the norm and too much saccharine. There just isn't much of an edge as the industrious animals cavort about--all set to music. My advice is that this one is worth seeing but there are MANY cartoons that are better that you might want to see first--unless you are a nut like me who watches EVERYTHING!
