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.
I do enjoy, and in most cases, love the Silly Symphonies. Frollicking Fish is better than El Terrible Toreador, The Merry Dwarfs and Cannibal Capers, but it is not one of my favourites like Father Noah's Ark, Skeleton Dance, The Band Concert, The Old Mill and Flowers and Trees. The animation is suitably dynamic and smooth, the music is lovely and energetic and the dancing is niftily choreographed. But at the end of the day, it is a virtually plot less cartoon, with nothing that comes across as funny, a lack of crispness in the pacing and apart from the octopus who is a remarkable creation there are no characters that are properly engaging. Overall, nice but nothing special. 6/10 Bethany Cox
