Nice enough but nothing extraordinary
15 May 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I have always enjoyed Disney Silly Symphonies, and I did enjoy Midnight in a Toy Shop, though it is nowhere near the best I've seen. It is virtually plot less and the gag with the "Mama" dolls sadly doesn't work, it was jarring and could be seen as racist. The animation is fluid in alternative to jerky and the black and white does look beautiful, and while sparse at first the music is great. What drives Midnight in a Toy Shop though was the spider main character, a pleasant departure from the villainous characterisations of spiders in Summer and Hell's Bells and a very likable character and does very well driving the cartoon rather than the music. There are also two great moments, the Spider playing the piano with his body, unique and delightful that was, and at the end with the fireworks, a nice piece of continuity. All in all, nice but I've seen better. 7/10 Bethany Cox
