In the last of the Silly Symphonies season cycle, bears hibernate (or try to), raccoons sneeze, moose swim, and pretty much everyone ice skates. Everyone gathers around the groundhog to see what happens.
Cannibal Capers was an interesting cartoon from a historical perspective, but over time not everybody will be enthused by it I don't think. The basic story is rather simplistic, the characters are stereotypical and the character features are outlandishly over-sized(though I imagine this was purposeful perhaps). However the rest of the animation is good with striking black and white and fluid backgrounds, and the music is outstanding, the string orchestration is especially rousing. The pace is crisp, and the action forming the cartoon is not really hilarious but skips along nicely with some niftily choreographed dancing.
In conclusion, Cannibal Capers is not for everybody and I have seen better and funnier Silly Symphonies but for a cartoon of that time it is an interesting look. 6/10 Bethany Cox
